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$2,550 for American Ceramic Society members and US$3,000 for non-members, which can be paid by the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution.

"I have always enjoyed and benefited from my interaction with Wiley both as a user of and contributor to Wiley publications.  In the specific case of the publication “Mathematical Modeling of Flow and Heat Transfer Phenomena in Glass Melting, Delivery, and Forming Processes” (Choudhary, Venuturumilli and Hyre, International Journal of Applied Glass Science, Vol 1, pp 188-214, 2010),  I chose to open the paper for free using Wiley's OnlineOpen publication option for the following reason - as one of the “founding fathers” of three-dimensional mathematical modeling of glass melting processes and a long term practitioner of mathematical modeling transport phenomena in materials processing, I felt it proper to share my insights with the fellow members of the modeling community.  Publishing with OnlineOpen helped my article become one of the most frequently downloaded publications in this journal and I have received many positive comments and parts of this paper have been used for training and educational purposes. I found Wiley staff very professional and easy to work with during the OnlineOpen publication process."
