University Libraries is excited to announce an open access (OA) agreement with Wiley. This agreement, negotiated through the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA), begins on February 1, 2022, and runs through December 31, 2022. Through this agreement, the University of Iowa receives 124 credits. Each credit allows one eligible article to be published open access in a Wiley hybrid journal at no cost to the author. Corresponding authors can choose to use a credit to make their article OA.
- Eligible publications have a corresponding author from the University of Iowa, are primary research and review articles (which may include original articles, case studies, reviews, and short communications), and are accepted for publication in a Wiley hybrid journal between February 1, 2022, and December 31, 2022.
- Choosing to make an article open access is part of the Wiley publishing workflow. Once your article has been accepted in a Wiley hybrid journal, you will see the option to make it OA in the Wiley Author Dashboard. If you choose to make your article OA, you will then be asked to indicate your affiliation with the University of Iowa, and your request will be submitted to the library for approval.
- Requests to use credits are approved on a first-come, first-served basis. If or when we run out of credits, UI authors will be automatically eligible for a 10% discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) until December 31, 2022.
