Wiley Agreement on Open Access

Wiley and Open Access publishing
On 1 January 2022, a new consortium agreement between Wiley and Danish research institutions came into force. To CBS researchers, the agreement means that you can publish your research as Open Access for free in all of Wiley’s hybrid journals (subscription-based journals that offer an Open Access option).

The agreement came into force on 1 January 2022 and is valid until 31 December 2025. According to the agreement, the final version of an article can be published as Open Access under the Creative Commons license CC-BY. The publication costs are covered by the consortium agreement. There is a national annual limit to the number of published Open Access articles. The limit is set higher than the current level of publication.

Agreement conditions

To publish Open Access for free, the following conditions need to be fulfilled:

•    The article is accepted on 1 January 2022 or later.
•    The article is primary research or a review article.
•    The corresponding author is affiliated to Copenhagen Business School.
•    The journal must be part of the agreement.

What do I do as a researcher?

For information on how to publish your article as Open Access in a Wiley hybrid journal, see Wiley’s step by step guide.

Please note that if you do not select Open Access initially, your article will be published under the traditional closed access model.

Which journals are part of the agreement?

The agreement includes all of Wiley’s hybrid journals. You can look up eligible journals here. 

Some of Wiley’s subscription-based journals and Open Access journals (journals that are not subscription-based and where all articles are published as Open Access) are not part of the agreement. If you publish in one of Wiley’s Open Access journals, you will need to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC). You can see a list of Wiley’s Open Access journals here.

Note that the Wiley agreement only covers a limited number of articles per year.
