Wiley and Carolina Consortium Partner to Deliver More Open Access Research

January 12, 2022 – Hoboken, NJ – Global research and education leader Wiley today announced a new three-year agreement with the Carolina Consortium, a consortium of libraries across the U.S. states of North Carolina and South Carolina.

The agreement allows members of 41 participating institutions access to all of Wiley’s hybrid and subscription journals and grants researchers the ability to publish accepted articles open access in all of Wiley’s 1,400 hybrid journals.

Open access is a rapidly growing scholarly publishing model that allows peer-reviewed articles to be read, shared and re-used immediately, making important research broadly available. Research published under the agreement will be accessible for free, enabling a wider dissemination of information among both academics and the public alike.

“Open access publishing allows scholars to bring high-quality research from the lab to your laptop. We’re excited to enter this agreement with the Carolina Consortium to bring more research to more people in the United States and globally,” said Liz Ferguson, Senior Vice President, Wiley Research Publishing.

“The Carolina Consortium greatly appreciates Wiley’s flexibility and willingness to work with us to structure a deal that meets the needs of our diverse member libraries, while supporting the open access publication of our collective scholarship,” said Tim Bucknall, Founder and Convener of the Carolina Consortium.

Wiley has open access agreements with a variety of institutions, consortia and government entities globally and throughout the US, including with the US Department of Energy, VIVA consortium in Virginia, Carnegie Mellon University, and Iowa State University.
