This agreement is structured on a limited funding pot shared across all participating UK institutions. If the pot is depleted faster than expected, Wiley reserve the right to restrict the agreement to certain articles.

The agreement and the publishing amounts will be reset in 2022, which will mean that all QUB corresponding authors will again be eligible for immediate open access from the 1st January 2022.

If you have any questions please email  or consult the Open Access LibGuide for more details.


*Former COAF partners were Versus Arthritis, Blood Cancer UK, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, and Parkinson’s UK..
