California Universities Partner with Wiley on Landmark Open Access Agreement

The 10-campus University of California system and 48 private and public academic and research institutions represented by the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC) have reached a new open access agreement with Wiley, one of the world’s largest publishers. The three-year deal begins this month and will make more research eligible for open access publication than any partnership of its kind in California.

“Some of the most groundbreaking research in the world is done right here in California, driving advances in medicine, environmental sustainability and society. I am excited about this opportunity for more California scholars, from UC and beyond, to make their work freely available so that people around the globe can benefit from and build on their discoveries,” said Maria De Prano, professor of Art History at UC Merced and chair of the UC faculty Academic Senate’s systemwide committee on library and scholarly communication. “I appreciate the partnership of our colleagues at SCELC and Wiley for making open access to California research possible at this scale.”

This transformative agreement builds on existing partnerships over the past few years and will provide researchers and students with continued access to subscription content and funding support for open access publication in Wiley’s expansive journal portfolio.
