Wiley and Italian Consortium Bibliosan announce Open Access agreement

Global research and education leader Wiley today announced a new four-year agreement with Bibliosan, a consortium of medical research institutes and hospitals in Italy.  

This agreement will provide 68 institutions with access to Wiley’s complete journal portfolio and enable participating researchers to publish accepted articles open access in all of Wiley’s more than 1,600 hybrid and gold open access journals. 

“Wiley is extremely pleased to announce this landmark agreement, which is the first of its kind for healthcare institutions. Bibliosan institutions contribute greatly to the advancement of science and this agreement will help them embody the best of research and clinical practice,” said Liz Ferguson, Senior Vice President, Wiley Research Publishing. 

Moreno Curti, M.D., Bibliosan Coordinator, said: “It is the first year that Bibliosan has signed Transformative Agreements, that is, both Read and Publish, with Wiley. This is an important step towards making the results of publicly funded research available, making it easier for researchers of Bibliosan members, the Italian Scientific Research and Care Institutes, to publish their research in open access journals, both hybrid and gold.” 

Wiley has open access agreements with more than 40 partners globally, and has signed a number of new agreements, which span eight countries across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa, earlier this year.
