OnlineOpen

OnlineOpen is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article freely available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With OnlineOpen, the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution pays an Article Publication Charge (APC) to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in the funding agency's preferred archive.

In addition to publication online via Wiley Online Library, authors of OnlineOpen articles are permitted to post the final, published PDF of their article on a website, institutional repository or other free public server, immediately on publication.

Authors will be free to choose one of the following licensing arrangements:

Furthermore, Research Councils UK (RCUK) and Wellcome Trust funded authors will be directed to the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY) in accordance with funder mandates effective on April 1st, 2013.

OnlineOpen articles published before April 1st, 2013 are protected by the usual journal copyright. For more information on the specific terms and conditions for these OnlineOpen articles, see section 6.2 below.

2. Compliant with funder mandates and open access policies

OnlineOpen is fully compliant with open access mandates, meeting the requirements of funding organizations where these apply, including but not limited to:

Wiley-VCH has agreements with various funding bodies, including the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), and full details can be found at wiley.com/go/funderstatement.

3. Eligibility

The OnlineOpen option is offered only to those authors whose primary research articles have been accepted for publication, and only at the point when the article is accepted, to ensure that the OnlineOpen option has no influence on the peer review and acceptance process.

4. How OnlineOpen works

Authors of accepted peer-reviewed articles have the choice to pay a fee in order for their published article to be made freely accessible to all. The OnlineOpen fee is fixed at €2500. The publication fee is charged on acceptance of the article and should be paid within 30 days by the author, funding agency, or institution. Payment must be received in full for the article to be published OnlineOpen.

From April 1st 2013, authors of OnlineOpen articles will retain the copyright, and an open-access agreement is put in place between the authors and Wiley-VCH. Reuse of the article by others is permitted under the terms of the Creative Commons License selected by the author. Full details of the terms and conditions, and the licenses available are given in section 6.

All OnlineOpen articles are treated in the same way as any other article. They go through the journal's standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit. The accepted articles are prepared for publication in the usual manner and are posted online on Wiley Online Library with the full range of features associated with that journal. The articles are archived for perpetuity and are registered at relevant Abstracting and Indexing Services and at CrossRef.

5. OnlineOpen FAQs

How do I order?

Please complete the OnlineOpen order form (note that you should not try to order OnlineOpen until your manuscript has been accepted for publication).

Can I be invoiced?

Yes. Please refer to the order form for detailed information.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Please refer to the order form for detailed information.

I have a question. Whom do I ask?

Please email your inquiry to EurJIC@wiley-vch.de for a prompt reply.

My article has already been published. Can I order OnlineOpen retroactively?

Yes.

Is prepayment required?

Prepayment is required to activate OnlineOpen on Wiley Online Library and deposit of your article in the funding agency's archive.

Are there any restrictions on the types of articles covered by OnlineOpen?

The OnlineOpen program covers primary research articles (including short communications). Review articles are not eligible.

Are OnlineOpen articles available in Early View?

The OnlineOpen program is available for EarlyView articles once their DOI is available. Complete bibliographic information (volume, issue, page range) is not required.

Will OnlineOpen articles be marked in Wiley Online Library?

Yes. OnlineOpen articles will be identified by means of an "open-lock" icon.

Does the OnlineOpen program cover all funding agency archives, or only selected ones?

If the OnlineOpen fee is paid, the published version of the article may be deposited in any non-commercial subject or institutional repository. In addition, Wiley-VCH will deposit the published article in PubMed Central, with no post-publication embargo, and the article may be mirrored to PMCIs (PubMed Central International repositories, such as UKPMC and PMC Canada).

How is the OnlineOpen program related to the US National Institutes of Health (NIH)'s public access policy?

Wiley-VCH's OnlineOpen program goes further than the requirements of the NIH public access policy. Under that policy, the accepted version of an article is deposited by Wiley-VCH into PubMed Central, with a post-publication embargo of 12 months. If the OnlineOpen fee is paid, the published article is deposited by Wiley-VCH into PubMed Central, with no embargo, and the article can also be deposited into other non-commercial subject or institutional repositories.
