Following the signature of several Read and Publish agreements with various publishers (IOP, Springer, Elsevier and IEEE), the CERN Scientific Information Service (SIS) has just concluded a fifth agreement, this time with publisher Wiley, thanks to the Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries and SwissUniversities, which negotiated the contract on behalf of the Swiss Consortium members and customers.
This new Read and Publish agreement, announced on 30 April, enables CERN-affiliated authors to publish their research articles in Wiley’s hybrid journals with article publication charges (APCs) paid centrally. In addition, CERN readers are granted access to content from all the Wiley journals that would otherwise be behind paywalls.
Information about the CERN open-access agreements is available on the CERN SIS website. In addition, in order to help authors better understand their open-access options, CERN SIS has released an Interactive Author Guide, available here. This intuitive tool guides authors to find the best open-access option available at CERN for publishing their articles.
