On 1 February 2011 Wiley announced the launch of Wiley Open Access, a programme of open access journals, publishing primary research in a range of subject disciplines in the life and biomedical sciences, including neuroscience, microbiology, ecology, and evolution.
The new journals are being launched in collaboration with a group of international professional and scholarly societies. Each journal will appoint an editor-in-chief and editorial board, responsible for the peer review process.
The journals will be published under the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial License, which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited and is not used for commercial purposes. A publication fee will be payable by authors on acceptance of their articles.
