  • Case studies
  • Reviews
  • Short communications.

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

Authors who wish to make excluded article types openly available may choose to:

  • Publish “closed access” in a hybrid journal and deposit the Author’s Accepted Manuscript in their institutional repository – view the publisher’s Self Archiving Policy for information on embargoes.
  • Pay an APC (if applicable) to publish the article open access in a hybrid or fully open access journal.
Eligibility dates

Your manuscript must have been accepted for publication in a Wiley hybrid (subscription) journal on or after 1 January 2022, or submitted to a Wiley or Hindawi fully open access journal on or after 1 January 2023.

For submissions by CAUL affiliated authors to Wiley hybrid journals that transitioned to fully open access under Wiley’s or Hindawi’s portfolios within 2022, the articles’ APCs will either be waived or routed to CAUL participating institutions for review, under CAUL’s agreement in 2023, subject to the articles’ acceptance date.

Please do note, however, that CAUL’s agreement will only cover articles that have yet to be published.  Hence, published articles will not be eligible for APC coverage under the agreement, even though they may fulfil the criteria set out above.  

Number of included articles

  • This agreement provides for an allowance of 6,750 articles by authors from institutions participating in the agreement to be published open access in 2023 with no transactional APCs. 
  • The allowance is a collective pool for all participating CAUL Member institutions.
  • Once the allowance is used, authors of any additional articles accepted in 2023, may choose to publish articles as "closed access" in hybrid journals or pay an APC for the article to be published open access in hybrid/fully open access titles.

  • select a participating institution as their affiliation in the publisher system
  • use an institutional email address for a participating institution (see Participating institutions list above) when submitting their article.

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. 

Responsible corresponding authors* from institutions listed under 'Participating institutions' 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.)

Information for libraries

License information

The license is available for download from ConsortiaManager. Library staff should contact the designated Content Coordinator at their institution regarding any license enquiries.


This transformative agreement allows participating institutions continued online access to all subscription journal content they previously had access to in 2021, during the term of the agreement.

Management of the allowance of included articles

  • The allowance is allocated to the CAUL Consortium as a whole, not to individual institutions.
  • CAUL National Office will approve articles for publication under the agreement. Institutions will only need to intervene in instances where further information is needed to ascertain if the article and/or author is eligible. 
  • It is possible that the threshold of included articles will be reached later in 2023.
  • If the threshold of included articles is reached, authors of any additional articles accepted in 2023 may choose to publish articles as "closed access" in hybrid journals or pay an APC for the article to be published open access in either hybrid or fully open access titles.
  • The allowance applies to articles accepted in the subscription year and resets at the beginning of the next year. If the allowance is exceeded in 2023, open access publishing without transactional APCs will recommence in January 2024 under the agreement for 2024.
  • As the year progresses, information about when the threshold of included articles is expected to be reached will be posted to this guide. Content Coordinators will also be updated on a regular basis.

Archiving in institutional repositories

Authors may deposit articles in institutional repositories.

  • Preprints may be deposited at any time.
  • Author accepted manuscripts may be made available via institutional repositories after an embargo period, which is usually 12 to 24 months.
  • Use the publisher's Author Compliance Tool to check the embargo period for individual journals or check their copyright policy on Wiley Online Library.
  • View the publisher's Self-Archiving Policy for further information.


  • Wiley will supply CAUL Procurement Services with reports on publishing output with article-level information on a monthly basis.
  • CAUL will share publishing output data with participating institutions on a regular basis.
