Wiley Contract

We are happy to publish here the full text of the “Publish&Read” agreement between Project DEAL and Wiley signed 15th January 2019.

The forward-looking “Publish&Read” model at the basis of the agreement delivers the benefits of open access to authors and advances the principles of open science by enabling institutions and researchers alike to make the most of the opportunities that open dissemination in our digital environment provides.

Projekt DEAL is confident that this partnership will enhance further developments in the field of scholarly publishing and access to publicly funded research.

Given the great interest shown by the international research and scholarly communications community, an FAQ has been prepared to clarify and provide context around some key components of the agreement.
