Open Access Agreements and Funding

CWRU authors are able to publish open access at no cost in select journals through agreements with several publishers. This guide provides details on each agreement for CWRU authors.

Agreement Details

In addition to current online access to all Wiley journal titles, OhioLINK has negotiated an upgraded agreement with Wiley that offers open-access publishing benefits for authors at no cost.

Students, faculty, and staff at most OhioLINK member institutions now can publish open access (OA) journal articles in 1,400 hybrid journals published by Wiley at no additional cost to either the author or the institution. Access to the publishing benefits begins March 1, 2022, and continues through December 31, 2026.  This means that to publish an article as open access in a Wiley hybrid journal without paying any Article Publication Charge (APC), the article must be accepted for publication during this period. Any extra page or color image charges are the responsibility of the author.

Starting in 2024 through 2026, fully open-access journals are now also eligible for the open-access publishing benefits under this deal.

There is a statewide publication limit, so it is first-come-first-serve processing.

NEW: OhioLINK's 2024-2026 open-access deal with Wiley applies to articles published in both their hybrid and fully open-access journals. "Hybrid" means that the journal publishes articles that are available both by subscription and through open access. Fully open-access journals refer to those that only allow authors to publish articles as open access.
