Wiley

Wiley 2016-2019

The Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) and scientific information provider Wiley have reached a Combined open access and subscription agreement between Wiley and Dutch universities of approx 1400 scientific journals and the opportunity to publish articles OA in a set of journals, without additional costs for the researcher submitting the article.

Wiley also publishes 60 full OA journals; these are not covered in this agreement. A researcher can of course still make an individual decision to publish in one of these 60 full OA journals. However, as they are not part of this deal, charges will need to be paid by the researcher as an additional fee.

Publish OA with Wiley : corresponding authors of Dutch universities should indicate when their article has been accepted, that the article must be published in OA. This goes without extra charges for the authors. Authors need to choose this OA option in the publication process. At the moment an author receives a message that his or her article has been accepted, the Wiley “author services pages” show how the author can select this option (see example ). The APC (article processing charge) is also presented on this page. The author needs to select in the drop-down menu (Funder / Institution payment) his or her Dutch university, thereby indicating that the APC is covered (via the UKB/VSNU agreement).
