Workflow for Wiley hybrid journals

Workflow for Wiley fully open access journals

Example screenshot(s):

For Wiley hybrid journals, please ensure that an affiliation to CAUL participating institutions is clearly stated when requested, and the eligibility message for CAUL affiliated researchers is shown at the step prior to confirming the article for open access publishing under CAUL’s agreement.


Authors submitting to a majority of Wiley fully open access journals will need to specify that their “institution or funder has an agreement with Wiley and may pay the Article Publication Charge,” and will need to enter an institution account code or declare their affiliation to said institution when requested.


In the Hindawi journal workflow, authors will be required to enter their institutional affiliations and the designated corresponding authors’ details will be matched to participating CAUL institutions.
