Finland: Consortium reaches OA agreement with Wiley

Three-year agreement offers open access and publishing.

FinELib, based out of the National Library of Finland, negotiates the licensing of electronic content on behalf of its 22 member institutions. The membership comprises HE and research institutions.

The new agreement with John Wiley & Sons means that 22 Finnish institutions will have continued access to Wiley’s subscription journals while enabling affiliated authors to publish open access articles in Wiley’s fully gold and hybrid journals.

As part of the agreement, eligible researchers and students will be automatically identified and notified of the opportunity to publish open access through their institutional connection, at no additional charge.

The 22 institutions will also have access to a distinct open access account dashboard for easy administration of their account, quick article approval, and reporting.
