Jisc, the UK’s research and education not-for-profit that negotiates licences and digital content agreements on behalf of UK universities, and Wiley, a global leader in research and education, have struck a four year “read and publish” agreement that offers researchers at UK universities the means to publish open access (OA) at no direct cost to them, in in all Wiley journals, including the European Journal of Neuroscience.
As part of the new agreement, the proportion of OA articles published by UK researchers will increase from 27% to an estimated 85% in year one, with the potential to reach 100% by 2022. The agreement will also enable institutions and their users to access all of Wiley’s journals.
The agreement begins in March 2020, and all participating Jisc member institutions and affiliated researchers are eligible. The contract will be made publicly available 31 March 2020.
