Wiley-DEAL in general
Since 15.1.2019 the Wiley-DEAL-contract is put into practice with all the eligible institutions that wanted to participate in the DEAL-contract (see HRK Circular No.2).
The contract runs from 15.01.2019 to 31.12.2021 with an option to extend by 1 year. The extension by 1 year has been decided in September 2021 (see HRK Circular No. 23 HRK-RS 23_2021 Sachstand Projekt DEAL_Verlängerung des Wiley-Vertrags bis Ende 2022). Thus, the WileyDEAL contract runs until the end of 2022.
Important key points including (start) data:
- 22.01.2019 Activation of all authorized participating institutions for all WILEY-journals (about 1.700 titles), with archive access back to 1997!
- 31.03.2019 Institutions wishing to participate must have submitted their membership declarations to MPDL Service GmbH and WILEY by that date, otherwise the facility will be disconnected from free access.
- 01.07.2019 All manuscripts accepted for publication (acceptance date: 01.07.2019 or later) with corresponding authors from the participating institutions will be published immediately and free of charge Open Access (with CC-BY, only for a few journals with CC-BY-NC-ND).
- 09.09.2021 The extension by 1 year has been decided in September 2021 (see HRK Circular No. 23 HRK-RS 23_2021 Sachstand Projekt DEAL_Verlängerung des Wiley-Vertrags bis Ende 2022). Thus, the WileyDEAL contract runs until the end of 2022.
Publications in WILEY Gold OA-Journals (WileyOPEN) will continue to be billed individually, but with a 20% discount on publication fees. Due to our framework agreement with WILEY, these Gold OA publications continue to be paid out of the library's OA publication fund! Thus there will be no additional cost for the authors, as so far already been handled.
*Please note: in DEAL-contracts the so-called hybrid model in Wiley-DEAL and SpringerNature-DEAL are full OpenAccess-articles and those fees are covered thus there are no additional fees for OpenAccess, so please always vote the OpenAccess-option as default there! see also DEAL explained: A-Z and DEAL-FAQ for authors (Will the publisher charge open access publication fees to authors?)
