The Health Sciences Library System and University Library System have signed a transformative (read and publish) agreement with Wiley, a major international publisher of books and journals across most disciplines, and the second biggest publisher for Pitt authors (after Elsevier), with over 800 articles per year.

This agreement allows the Pitt community to read and publish open in all its journals, without having to pay open access charges. The submitting author must be a corresponding author with current student enrollment or employment status with Pitt or UPMC.

See below for more information, or visit the Open Access page of the HSLS Scholarly Communication LibGuide for more information.

How to publish open access through Wiley (including Hindawi titles)

  • Corresponding authors who are currently enrolled as a student or employed at the University of Pittsburgh or UPMC may publish open access at no charge to the author. To qualify, articles must be published in a Wiley or Hindawi fully open access journal (submitted on or after January 1, 2024) or published open access in a hybrid journal (accepted on or after January 1, 2024).
  • Eligible article types include primary research, review articles, and cases studies.
  • To receive the waiver, corresponding authors must create an account in Wiley’s Author Services system using their Pitt (or UPMC) e-mail address.
  • For Open Access Journals, authors will also be prompted to choose a payment option where they can enter PITT as the open access account code to apply for the waiver.
  • Search Journal Finder to select from over 1,400 journals included in this deal.
