As a global leader in education and research, Wiley is helping aid the global community by supporting students, educators, researchers and professionals who are contending with the increasing impact of COVID-19. 

For the Education Community:
As a growing number of schools are being affected by COVID-19, Wiley is aiming to ensure instructors who need to teach remotely have the necessary tools to help their students. Instructors without an adopted online learning solution, such as WileyPLUS, Knewton Alta or zyBooks, can receive free access for their students for the remainder of the Spring 2020 term. Instructors teaching at impacted institutions can request access to WileyPLUS or Knewton Alta here; instructors looking for zyBooks access can apply here. For current WileyPLUS and Knewton Alta instructors, Customer Success Specialists are equipped to provide additional support, including extension of due dates, adjusting assignments or increasing the capacity to work remotely. 

Wiley is also partnering with organizations, like VitalSourceRedShelf, Barnes & Noble, and Follet, to offer most academic eTextbooks free to students whose classes have moved online. Wiley is also partnering with global library vendors ProQuest, Ebsco, and Askews to allow unrestricted user access to Wiley content. And Wiley Efficient Learning is offering free CPA, CMA, and CFA course access to new instructors and students for the remainder of the Spring 2020 term.

Wiley Education Services is offering expanded partner support, which includes providing additional technology licenses and assistance with course production and associated LMS support, as well as virtual office hours to support educators who must rapidly transition to virtual instruction. Beginning next week, Advancement Courses is providing a free micro-course, Launching Online Learning, for K-12 educators to quickly ramp-up online learning in their environment. And to make the adaptation to online learning as easy as possible, Wiley is providing free resources and webinars for all instructors.

For the Research Community:
Wiley is making all current and future research content and data on the COVID-19 Resource Site available to PubMed Central, the archive of biomedical and life science at the US National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine.  The research content is accessible in other publicly funded repositories, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) COVID-19 database and Wellcome Trust , for as long as needed.Additionally, Scitrus, powered by Atypon's AI-driven personalized discovery application, launched a free, real-time feed of the latest research and news on COVID-19.

For the Professional Community:
As professionals navigate working remotely, many are without preparation or guidance about how to make that switch seamlessly. Wiley is providing free eBook access via Amazon and Apple Store to the bestselling title, The Year Without Pants, by Scott Berkun, detailing his transition to leading a remote team and navigating a work-from-home culture. Other useful resources recommended by Wiley that can help professionals stay connected and productive remotely include: Projects Without Boundaries: Successfully Leading Teams and Managing Projects in a Virtual WorldVirtual Teams For Dummies, and The Power of Virtual Distance: A Guide to Productivity and Happiness in the Age of Remote Work.
