Global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced [via liblicense, auf der Wiley-Seite kann ich nichts finden) a new funded access service for authors of journal articles. Through this new program, authors will have the option of paying a fee to ensure that their article is available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley InterScience, Wiley’s online publishing platform, as well as the author’s funding agency’s preferred archive if applicable.
As an initial offering, funded access will be available for 45 biomedical journals. Wiley will deposit the final PDF of the article into the funder’s archive; this is the final, authoritative version of the article, after peer review, editing, any final corrections, online and print formatting, and
publication. The fee for ensuring articles are made available through the funded access program is $3,000 per article.
