Journal Backfiles

Wiley backfiles span three centuries of scientific research over 18 million pages, across 900+ titles. Covering the complete range of scientific, technical, medical, business, humanities and social science disciplines, titles extend to Volume 1, Issue 1, and include issues dating as far back as the 18th century.

Wiley backfiles feature many of the top tier and earliest journals in their respective field with almost half the title published on behalf of academic and professional societies.

Articles are presented as full-text PDFs with XML-based headers, abstracts, and references which take users to related material published both before and after the citing articles.

Most backfile content is material published before 1997.  However, there are some cases where there is a "short backfile," where content does not go back to 1997.  This includes when a previously subscription title becomes an Open Access title, but leaves some material behind the paywall.  In those cases, a short backfile is available for purchase.

Backfiles are available as a one time purchase. Please contact your Account Manager for a price quote.
