How does it work? Will my article get preferential treatment?

All OnlineOpen articles are treated in the same way as any other article. Your article will go through the journal's peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on the article's own merit.

Online Open Process

Once accepted for publication, your articles are posted online on Wiley Online Library. The articles are archived for perpetuity and are registered at relevant Abstracting and Indexing Services and at CrossRef. Read more here.

Who funds?

As an author, you pay a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in your preferred archive. Sometimes, your funding agency or institution pays the publication charge.
