BU are currently negotiating an agreement with Wiley, which brings together subscription and Open Access (OA) charges for their journals.
This agreement should substantially increase the number of UK authored Gold OA articles within Wiley’s collection. It will also provide increased opportunity for BU researchers to have their own articles published as Gold OA with Wiley.
Staff and researchers are encouraged to bear this future agreement in mind when considering which journal to publish their work. It is intended this agreement will operate similarly to the established Springer agreement, although in the case of Wiley, authors will need to apply to BUs OA Fund but can access all of Wiley’s journal titles rather than a title from a specific OA collection.
It is expected that this agreement will be finalised by the end of January 2019.
