Wiley Journals Permit Deposit of Articles in Pitt’s Repository

Publisher John Wiley & Sons and the NorthEast Research Libraries Consortium (of which the University of Pittsburgh is a member) have negotiated blanket permission for authors to deposit their articles into local institutional repositories. D-Scholarship@Pitt is the institutional repository for the research output of the University of Pittsburgh, providing stable, long-term storage and ongoing maintenance for content deposited by Pitt authors. Materials are submitted directly by authors with an active University of Pittsburgh Computer Account.

University of Pittsburgh authors (or co-authors) who publish in Wiley journals may now deposit the peer-reviewed and accepted version of their articles into D-Scholarship@Pitt twelve months after the beginning of the month of first publication, whether as an Early View article [online version published before inclusion in a journal issue] or in a scheduled online issue of a Wiley journal.** This new policy applies to articles published after October 1, 2011. The deposited version of an article must:

  • Link to the final published version on Wiley Online Library
  • Indicate that the deposited version is the peer-reviewed version
  • Include a citation to the final published version

An example notice might read: “This is the peer-reviewed version of the following article: [full citation], which has been published in final form at [link to final article].”

Authors may not deposit the final published version (e.g., a downloaded article PDF) into D-Scholarship@Pitt.

**NOTE:  Deposit of an article into D-Scholarship@Pitt does not satisfy requirements of the NIH Public Access Mandate. Articles resulting from NIH-funded research must be deposited in PMC, regardless of whether they are also available in Pitt’s repository.
