Author eligibility

In Hindawi journals, articles will only have one designated "corresponding author" each.

Responsible corresponding authors must include a participating institution as one of their affiliations to benefit from this agreement. 

Authors will be identified as eligible for open access publishing by their:

  • institutional affiliation

Responsible corresponding authors must use their institutional email address when submitting an article for publication

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.

How to submit your article for open access publishing

The following instructions for authors have been provided by the publisher.

Workflow for Wiley hybrid journals

Workflow for Wiley fully open access journals

Workflow for Hindawi 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. 

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.

Please email cs-openaccess@wiley.com for questions regarding this agreement. Please include your full name, institution, article title, journal name and manuscript ID or DOI (if available), and state the reason for your enquiry.

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 2024.
  • If the threshold of included articles is reached, authors of any additional articles accepted in 2024 may choose to publish articles as "closed access" or pay an APC for the article to be published open access.
  • 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 2024, open access publishing without transactional APCs will recommence in January 2025 under the agreement for 2025.
  • 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.
