Wiley Inks 22 Open Access Agreements across North America

Agreements cover 117 individual institutions in the United States and Mexico


 Wiley, one of the world’s largest publishers and a global leader in scientific research and career-connected education, announced that it has signed or renewed 22 transformational open access agreements with partners across the United States and Mexico.

These agreements, which all begin in 2023, span individual universities, research labs, and academic consortia across 18 U.S. states and Mexico. They allow participating institutions access to all of Wiley’s hybrid and subscription journals and grant researchers the ability to publish accepted articles open access across Wiley’s extensive publishing portfolio.

The majority of these agreements represent new partnerships for Wiley, with some representing expanded access and/or renewed agreements within existing partnerships.

In total, these agreements cover 117 institutions and will make an estimated 3,600 articles open access, accelerating the pace of open access publishing in North America.

“The open access movement continues to gather pace across North America, and we’re extremely proud to partner with so many leading institutions to make more research more widely available,” said Kathryn Sharples, Vice President, Open Research, Wiley.

Wiley continues to prioritize partnership with libraries and library consortia as a means of driving open access forward. Recently, it expanded its agreements with the University of California and the Big Ten Academic Alliance in the United States, while also signing new agreements in Hong Kong, the Czech Republic, Türkiye and India earlier this year.

A full list of participating partners includes:

  • Individual Institutions: University of Alabama at Birmingham, Brandeis University, Carnegie Mellon University, Colorado State University, Montana State University, Princeton University, Southern Methodist University, Syracuse University, UMass Lowell, West Virginia University, Texas Tech University Health Services Center, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Portland State University, Northeastern University, Texas A&M University, Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados del IPN (CINVESTAV), University of North Texas Health Science Center, Washington State University, and Texas Christian University.
