EJN publisher, Wiley, signs Transitional Agreement to Accelerate Open Access Publishing in Spain

14 April 2021


Wiley, publisher of the European Journal of Neuroscience, announced a new open access agreement with the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (Crue Universidades Españolas) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Researchers and students of participating Italian institutions can now publish open access in EJN at no direct cost.

This read and publish agreement, initially for one year, is part of a longer partnership between Wiley and Crue-CSIC. The agreement allows researchers at participating institutions to both access Wiley’s journals and to publish accepted articles open access in Wiley’s hybrid journals, which contain both subscription and open access content. As a result of the agreement, an estimated 70% of articles published by participating institutions in 2021 will be open access, enabling more research from leading Spanish institutions to be read, cited and built upon.
