Wiley RAP Agreement

The 2022 - 2024 Wiley RAP agreement enables ANU authors to publish immediately to open access on the publisher's platform once the article has been accepted, with no transactional APCs.

Included titles

This agreement allows ANU authors to publish open access in approximately 1,400 titles with no transactional APCs. View the full list of Wiley titles - those available for ANU authors to publish open access in under the agreement are marked 'Yes' in the 'Included in RAP Agreement' column.

Wiley's Journal Finder tool allows ANU authors to search for journals in their fields and instantly compare key impact metrics

Eligible articles

Article types

Open access publishing covered under this agreement includes the following article types:

  • Primary research and review articles, including but not limited to original articles
  • Case studies
  • Reviews
  • Short communications.

View Wiley's list of article classifications, which includes an indication of whether they are eligible for open access publishing. 

Authors may publish excluded article types as “closed access” or pay an article publication charge (if applicable) to make the article open access.

Acceptance date

Articles must have an acceptance date within the duration of this agreement (2022 - 2024) to be eligible to be published open access with no transactional APCs.

Number of included articles

  • This agreement provides for an allowance of articles* by authors to be published per year open access in 2022 - 2024 with no transactional APCs. 
  • The allowance is a collective pool for all participating CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) Member institutions.
  • Once the allowance is used, authors of any additional articles accepted in 2022 - 2024, may choose to publish articles as "closed access" or pay an APC for the article to be published open access.

* The number of included articles for 2023 is calculated at 6,750, and for 2024 at 6,900.

Information for authors

Responsible corresponding authors* above may publish immediately to open access on the publisher's platform once the article has been accepted with no transactional APCs. Page and colour charges may apply.

Author rights

Articles from authors at participating institutions may be published under the author's choice of the following licences:

  • CC-BY
  • CC-BY-NC

Further information about the licences is available on the publisher’s website.

The Creative Commons licenses allow reuse (some with conditions) while protecting the authors' rights of acknowledgment as authors. Authors retain copyright.

How to submit your article for open access publishing

  1. Follow the publisher's usual article submission process via the journal’s homepage.
  2. On acceptance of the article, the responsible* corresponding author selects open access, confirms the licence type (e.g. CC-BY), and indicates funder and their institutional affiliation using Wiley Author Services.
  3. The APC will be waived for authors who have 
    • used an institutional email address belonging to one of the participating institutions and
    • selected a participating institution as their institutional affiliation.

For more information on the author workflow refer to this step-by-step guide on publishing open access in Wiley hybrid journals.

* Each article may have more than one corresponding author, but only a single designated 'responsible corresponding author' who will be in charge of the administrative details for the article.

Author identification

Authors will be identified as eligible for open access publishing with no transactional APCs by their 

  • ANU email address and
  • and ANU institutional affiliation.

Responsible corresponding authors must use their institutional email address when submitting an article for publication in order for the publication to be approved to be published open access with no transactional APCs.

Responsible corresponding authors should not use personal email addresses (e.g. Hotmail, Gmail). Doing so may result in delayed approval of the article or the article may not be approved to be published open access under the terms of the agreement.
