Open Access Publishing Agreements at UNL Libraries

Wiley/Hindawi: Open Access Agreement with the Big Ten Academic Alliance

University of Nebraska authors whose articles are accepted on or after January 1, 2023 for publication in Wiley and Hindawi journals can publish their work Open Access (OA) at no cost to themselves. The associated charges (known as Article Processing Charges, or APCs) are covered by the Libraries. Fully OA ("gold") journals, as well as "hybrid" journals publishing both subscription and OA content, are included in this agreement; in the case of fully OA journals published by Wiley or Hindawi, articles must also have been submitted on or after January 1, 2023 to be covered.

Primary research and review articles with a corresponding author affiliated with any of the University of Nebraska campuses are covered by this agreement. Authors should be careful to specify their University of Nebraska affiliation when submitting their articles, to ensure that the publisher’s editorial management system identifies them as eligible. When submitting an article to a Wiley OA ("gold") journal, select “My institution or funder has an agreement with Wiley…”, and then use the tool provided to find the correct account code to enter. In the case of Wiley "hybrid" journals, authors will be presented with the choice of publishing OA or not after the article is accepted. For detailed instructions, see the the following documents provided by Wiley:

OA articles in WIley and Hindawi journals are published under a Creative Commons license of the author's choice, with authors retaining copyright.
