Open Access Publishing Agreements at UNL Libraries

Wiley: Open Access Agreement with the Big Ten Academic Alliance

NOTE: As of October 25, 2022, the block of 125 Wiley APC credits allotted to University of Nebraska authors has been depleted. Authors whose articles are accepted for publication in Wiley "hybrid" journals during the remainder of 2022 will not be notified of the option to publish OA at no cost. Instead, they will be offered a 10% discount on their own APC payment. A new subscription license for 2023 is currently under negotiation, which may offer a similar or better level of support for OA publication.

University of Nebraska authors whose articles are accepted for publication in Wiley “hybrid” journals between February 1 and December 31, 2022 may be able to have their work published Open Access (OA) at no cost to themselves. Associated costs (known as Article Processing Charges, or APCs) for these publications will be covered by the Libraries. 

Hybrid journals are journals that publish both Open Access and non-Open Access articles. Under the terms of the agreement between Wiley and the Big Ten Academic Alliance, a capped number of articles can be published OA in hybrid journals at no charge; once this threshold has been reached, authors will be offered a 10% discount on the APC. Charges for publication in Wiley’s fully Open Access (Gold OA) journals are not covered.

Corresponding authors affiliated with University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska-Omaha, University of Nebraska-Kearney, and University of Nebraska Medical Center are eligible for the APC credit. Authors should specify their institutional affiliation when submitting their articles, to ensure that the publisher’s editorial management system identifies them correctly for application of the credit. 

After the article has been accepted for publication, authors will be presented with the choice of publishing OA or not. It is not possible to choose the OA option after the article has been published.
