Once a paper is accepted, the author identified as the corresponding author receives an email prompting them to log into Wiley Author Services in order to complete the license agreement on behalf of all authors on the paper. If the OnlineOpen option is not selected the corresponding author is presented with the journal’s standard AAA license agreement. This must be signed and submitted to the AAA/Wiley in accordance of provided instructions.
Open Access via Wiley OnlineOpen
OnlineOpen is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With OnlineOpen, the author, the author’s funding agency, or the author’s institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in the funding agency’s preferred archive.
Any authors wishing to send their paper OnlineOpen will be required to complete the payment form available from the Wiley website. Prior to acceptance there is no requirement to inform an Editorial Office that you intend to publish your paper OnlineOpen if you do not wish to. All OnlineOpen articles are treated in the same way as any other article. They go through the journal’s standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.
