Wiley Announces New Funded Access Service

Hoboken, N.J., August 7, 2006 - Global publisher John Wiley & 
Sons, Inc., today announced a new funded access service for 
authors of journal articles. Through this new program, authors 
will have the option of paying a fee to ensure that their article 
is available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley 
InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com), Wiley's online 
publishing platform, as well as the author's funding agency's 
preferred archive if applicable.

"Wiley developed the funded access program as a response to 
journal authors whose funding might have certain requirements," 
said Mike Davis, Vice President, Global Life and Medical 
Sciences. "For those authors who want to publish in a Wiley 
journal, and whose funding agency requires deposit in an archive, 
this new program supports these requirements."

As an initial offering, funded access will be available for 45 
biomedical journals. Only authors of primary research articles 
qualify for this new service, and only those authors whose 
articles have been accepted for publication will be offered the 
funded access option at the point when the article is accepted, 
to ensure that the funded access option has no influence on the 
peer review and acceptance process. Wiley will deposit the final 
PDF of the article into the funder's archive; this is the final, 
authoritative version of the article, after peer review, editing, 
any final corrections, online and print formatting, and 
publication. The fee for ensuring articles are made available 
through the funded access program is $3,000 per article.

Journals participating in the launch of funded access are:

American Journal of Medical Genetics Part A
American Journal of Medical Genetics Part B -- Neuropsychiatric Genetics
American Journal of Physical Anthropology
