New Wiley open access agreement

Update 25 Sep 2020: The Wiley agreement described below has been temporarily paused from 12 Oct until the end of 2020. There was a cap on the annual number of articles that could be made open access under the deal, and this cap has now been reached. Articles will once again become eligible from 1 Jan 2021.

A UK-wide agreement has been signed with the publisher Wiley to cover the costs of open access. From 2 March 2020, this new agreement means that all authors affiliated with institutions whose libraries pay for the Wiley journal subscription package may publish primary research and review articles in Wiley journals at no further charge.

Edinburgh Napier University library subscribes to this deal, so if the corresponding author is affiliated with ENU (or another eligible institution) and the article was accepted on or after 2 March 2020, it can be made open access at no further cost. (Please note that only a certain number of articles can be published each year under this agreement.)

A similar agreement with Springer is already in place. See this list of open access deals that ENU authors have access to.
