Wiley have announced the launch of Wiley Open Access, a new publishing programme of open access journals. The first three titles - Microbiology Open, Brain and Behavior and Ecology and Evolution - will all launch later in 2011.
Wiley Open Access journals will be published under the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License, which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited and is not used for commercial purposes. All articles will be deposited in PubMed Central and UKPMC.
A publication fee will be payable by authors on acceptance of their articles, though the press release does not indicate what the fee will be.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of other publishers announcing their new open access journals including Scientific Reports (NPG), BMJOpen (BMG) and SageOpen (Sage).
