The following agreement is resumed after 31 December 2020. The agreement respected what it had set for itself; rapidly increase the volume of OA from the UK, reduce spending and finance this transition with credits previously spent on subscriptions. As of 31 August, 5,164 articles have been published or accepted in open access, an increase of 82% over articles published in 2019, and an increase of 91% compared to 2018. The agreement aims to support and accelerate the publication of open access in the UK and is the largest transition agreement, headquartered in the UK and which includes 138 Jisc member institutions. If you live in a participating institution, you can now browse and read the entire Portfolio of Wiley magazines available in the wiley Online library. To learn more and see if you have the right to cover your publishing costs, go to wileyauthors.com/Jisc I plan and implement the schedules and processes for selecting and renewing Jisc Collections agreements to ensure that they will be concluded on time and to the greatest benefit of libraries in higher and vocational education. In January 2021, the OA fund will be reset and the reduced fee will remain applicable to all OA publications. Although the OA fund will increase by 2% in 2021, we want the Fund to continue and cover all research and audit items. The reason for this is threefold: we want to minimize the administration of universities, simplify authorship and maximize the value that researchers and universities derive from the agreement. Jisc-Wiley also announced that the specialized journals of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) will join the Jisc-Wiley Read and Publish agreement. This step will increase the number of publishing sites that authors can publish in accordance with tender mandates, and increase the volume of UK open access production.
The Jisc-Wiley Read and Publish agreement went through funds previously paid for subscriptions to pay for OA publications in Wiley`s fully open hybrid magazines. Bournemouth University benefits from this agreement through an agreement with JISC.
