Wiley Transformative Agreement Extended

Through a transformative agreement negotiated by our e-resources consortium, the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC), Loyola Marymount University faculty and staff may publish original research and review articles open access in any of Wiley’s 1400+ hybrid journals (subscription-based journals which offer an open access option) at no charge to the author. This new agreement extends the pre-existing SCELC Wiley Transformative Agreement through 2026.

Wiley defines original research as a research article, review article, commentary, short communication, case study, technical note, education, data article, lecture, method and protocol, perspective, practice and policy, or rapid publication. SCELC has compiled a list of Wiley article type descriptions. Authors can learn of their eligibility by indicating their institutional affiliation as part of their article submission process and using an institutional email address. Unless the article is published in an early view or an online issue, authors may order open access retroactively.

About SCELC Transformative Agreements

Transformative agreements for the William H. Hannon Library are negotiated by SCELC. Please note that each publisher agreement has specific article specifications and processes. In order to benefit from these transformative agreements, the LMU author must be the corresponding author. Learn more at our Scholarly Communications LibGuide.
