OnlineOpen – Wiley's Open Access Option
Choosing OnlineOpen makes your article open access and freely available to all on Wiley Online Library, including those who don’t subscribe to the journal. OnlineOpen fulfills funding agency mandates that require grantees to archive the final version of their article. Wiley will also immediately deposit your OnlineOpen article in PubMed Central and PMC mirror sites.
The cost for OnlineOpen is US$3,000, which can be paid by the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution.

All Research Councils UK (RCUK) and Wellcome Trust funded authors will be directed to the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY).

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, choose a Creative Commons license, and arrange payment of an open access publication fee (US$3000) by clicking on ‘Make my article OnlineOpen’. 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.
