Wiley and Vanderbilt University’s Heard Libraries sign agreement to publish more open access research

Wiley, one of the world’s largest publishers and a global leader in research and learning, today announced a new five-year open access agreement with the Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries at Vanderbilt University, beginning on Jan. 1, 2024.

This transformative agreement will provide Vanderbilt affiliates with access to Wiley’s complete journal portfolio and enable participating researchers to publish research in Wiley’s complete portfolio of nearly 2,000 hybrid and gold open access journals, including those published by Hindawi, starting Jan. 1, 2024.

“It’s a pleasure to partner with Vanderbilt University as we continue to support U.S. institutions in making more research more widely available,” said Wiley’s Vice President of Open Research Kathryn Sharples.

“I’m delighted to announce this new agreement with Wiley, which will provide Vanderbilt scholars access to a wide range of peer-reviewed journals across multiple disciplines,” said University Librarian Jon Shaw. “The Heard Libraries believe firmly in removing barriers to research, advancing information equity, and encouraging collaborative scholarship, and this agreement helps us accomplish those goals.”

Wiley is committed to paving the way toward an open research future, having achieved open access partnerships with over 2,500 institutions around the world. Wiley established its first U.S. open access arrangement in a pilot with Iowa State University in 2021 and now has more than 40 agreements, which touch approximately 400 institutions, across North America.
