About the Read & Publish Agreement

MSU Library has a four-year ‘read and publish’ agreement with Wiley.

In addition to the continued read-access to Wiley journals, corresponding authors affiliated with Montana State University may publish open access at no charge to the author. To qualify, articles must be published in a Wiley or Hindawi fully open access journal (submitted on or after 1 January 2023) or published open access in a hybrid journal (accepted on or after 1 January 2023).

As there is a limit  to the number of articles that can be published openly during each year of the agreement, please be aware that it may not be possible to make your article open access if our article entitlement is capped at the time of your request.

For additional information about the agreement, please visit this page.

How to Apply for Funding

1. When your article is accepted for publication, you will be notified of acceptance and given the opportunity to publish your article as open access (OA) under this agreement.

2. All MSU authors who choose to publish their article openly through this agreement, should also submit a request for funding through the MSU Library Author Fund

3. For more information on funding open access research at MSU Library, please visit the Author Fund website.
