How do I make my article OnlineOpen?
As the author, you can decide to publish your article with open access once it has been accepted for publication. After acceptance you will receive an email from Author Services with a link to your ‘My Publication’ page. From here you can choose the OnlineOpen option, and arrange payment of an open access publication fee (US$3000; BES members US$2,250) by clicking on ‘Make my article OnlineOpen’ and choose a Creative Commons license by clicking on ‘Choose license’. Alternatively, you can go direct and complete the payment of the open access publication fee via the OnlineOpen Form.
A number of funders and institutions have arrangements with Wiley to pay the open access publication fee on behalf of their investigators. Please find out if your institution or funder will pay your open access fee: Institutional and Funder Open Access Payments.
