FinELib’s negotiations with Wiley continue


The FinELib consortium and Wiley are negotiating for an agreement, which would grant researchers and students the right to read the journals published by Wiley, as well as the possibility to publish their articles open access in Wiley journals without additional payments.

The previous agreement between FinELib and Wiley came to an end on December 31, 2018. For now, the prolonged negotiations haven’t yet affected the daily life of researchers and students, since Wiley has kept access to their journals open for the subscribers of the previous agreement.

The negotiating parties are still looking for a solution which would be acceptable for both Wiley and the members of FinELib consortium.

Similar negotiations with another scholarly publisher, Taylor & Francis, ended in January. The FinELib consortium doesn’t have an agreement with Taylor & Francis at the moment.
