Wiley and the Royal Danish Library Sign Open Access Agreement


February 2, 2022 – Hoboken, NJ – Global research and education leader Wiley today announced a new four-year agreement with the Royal Danish Library (RDL) which will enable more open access research to be published by Danish researchers while allowing authors to retain copyright of their articles without embargo. Through this arrangement, scholars will have immediate and open use of published research, serving to accelerate academic discovery.

This agreement will provide 34 member institutions with access to Wiley’s complete journal portfolio and enable more than 1,100 open access articles to be published each year of the agreement.

“We look forward to supporting Danish researchers in delivering more open access research to global audiences and to working with our society partners and editors in Denmark to deliver the full benefits of the transition to open access,” said Liz Ferguson, Senior Vice President, Wiley Research Publishing.

Kira Stine Hansen, Deputy Director, Royal Danish Library and Head of Copenhagen University Library, said: “On behalf of Danish universities and higher education institutions we are pleased with this new agreement with Wiley continuing the support of the national strategy of open and equal access to scientific results for the benefit of society. Cost neutral immediate Open Access has been and will continue to be a very important parameter in negotiations with international academic publishers.”

Wiley has open access agreements with more than 25 partners globally, and has signed a number of new agreements, including with the Carolina Consortium, the National Research Council of Science & Technology in the Republic of Korea, the Slovenian Academic Consortium, and the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium, earlier this year.
