Wiley Extends Open Access Option to Over 80% of Journals

From a Wiley Announcement:

John Wiley & Sons  announced today that its open access option for individual journal articles, OnlineOpen, will be available to authors in 81% of the journals it publishes. OnlineOpen gives authors the option to publish an open access paper in their journal of choice where it will benefit from maximum impact.


OnlineOpen, Wiley’s hybrid open access model for subscription journals launched in 2004, is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. As of July 2012, OnlineOpen is available in over 1200 subscription journals.

In addition to OnlineOpen Wiley launched Wiley Open Access, a fully open access journal program, in early 2011. The portfolio includes eleven journals, with additional journals scheduled to launch later in the year. Wiley Open Access provides open access publication in peer-reviewed journals where all published articles are immediately freely available to read, download and share.
