The agreement is the second of its kind in Denmark, which, like the agreement entered into with Elsevier in 2021, ensures full read access to Wiley's journals and free and immediate access (Open Access) for the whole world to the articles published by researchers at the institutions covered by the agreement.

Highlights of the outcome of the negotiations

  • The price of the agreement for the journals is fixed for the entire period based on the fee in 2021.
  • There is continued and full reading access to the Wiley Journal Collection for institutions covered by the contract.
  • Only researchers affiliated with institutions that are party to the agreement can publish Open Access for free.
  • The agreement ensures that researchers (as corresponding author) can publish with immediate Open Access under a CC-by license.
  • There is a national ceiling (cap) on the annual number of published OA articles set above the current level of publication.
  • The agreement does not cover publications in Wiley's Gold OA journals.
  • The agreement provides post termination access to 100% of the Wiley portfolio (gradually earned if an institution withdraws from the contract during the period, post termination access is earned as follows: 1st-2nd year = 50%, 3rd year = 75%, 4th year = 100%).

The agreement has been redacted due to GDPR and other details of confidential nature only relevant to the participating institutions.

What do I do as a researcher?

Wiley's Open Access terms for publishing articles follow Wiley's normal publishing process. Upon approval of an accepted article you will as a researcher be guided through conditions for approval of the agreement's Open Access conditions. The first step is to select your institution from the list to confirm your affiliation. Next, you will be presented with the option to publish open access without APC payment, and with a CC-BY license attached to your article.

List of journals

Gold Open Access journals are not part of the agreement. When publishing in Gold OA journals, as usual, a publishing fee (APC) will have to be paid to be able to publish your article as Open Access.

Glossary

  • Gold Open Access: publication in Open Access journals.
  • Hybrid Open Access: publishing in traditional subscription journals that also offer Open Access for a fee (APC) from the author.
  • APC: article processing charge (Open Access publishing fee).

Principles for corresponding author

Under the new agreements between publishers and the Royal Danish Library, researchers have the opportunity to publish their articles Open Access (OA) without payment of APC, provided they meet the requirements below and thus qualify as corresponding author in general and under the terms of the individual agreement.

General principles

  • Corresponding author must be employed, or a student, at one of the institutions that subscribe to the agreement
  • A corresponding author may have dual employment, e.g. at hospital and university or university and company, where only one institution is part of the agreement. At least one of the places of employment must be included in the agreement.
  • The research described in the article must have been carried out primarily at the institution that is part of the agreement, and the institution where the article is registered in PURE.
  • Corresponding author must explicitly credit and use the name of the institution that is part of the agreement as its primary affiliation
  • Corresponding author must use the institutional e-mail address for the institution that is part of the agreement under author information in the article.
  • Corresponding author is encouraged to use ORCID to indicate alternative e-mail addresses; e.g. personal e-mail address.

Wiley agreement 2022-2025

  • The agreement covers institutions listed below that subscribe to the Wiley journal collection
  • Corresponding author must be or have been employed, or a student, in the period 2021-2025, as it must be considered likely that a researcher may have been employed in 2021 - i.e. the year before the agreement comes into force - but research results have first been described and peer reviewed in the period from 2021. Employment that ends before 2021 does not count as qualifying.

The agreement does not cover Gold Open Access journals published by Wiley.
