New transformative agreement with Wiley increases open access to Swedish research

Bibsam and Wiley has signed a new read & publish agreement.

Nails in wood connected by strings.

Researchers at the 45 organizations that have chosen to participate in the agreement will have read access to the publisher's around 1,500 subscription journals and the opportunity to publish freely available articles in 1,550 journals at no additional cost.

The agreement between the Bibsam consortium and Wiley means that we can look forward to many more open access publications from Swedish researchers. It is an important step in our transition to open science. The fact that the agreement covers reading as well as publishing in both hybrid and fully open journals gives us better control over future expenses,” states Astrid Söderbergh Widding, President of Stockholm University, chair of the negotiating group and the Bibsam Consortium's steering group
