OnlineOpen: Open access option
 

Authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article, can do so by opting to publish their article in our Open Access programme OnlineOpen. With OnlineOpen, the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in the funding agency's preferred archive. The charge for OnlineOpen publication is $3,000 (a 25% discount is offered for papers where the first or corresponding author is a current member of the British Ecological Society, www.britishecologicalsociety.org annual membership fee £40 for ordinary members, £20 for student/reduced/retired members). For the full list of terms and conditions, click here.

Any authors wishing to designate their paper OnlineOpen will be required to complete the payment form and will be given the option of signing a range of different Creative Commons licences, depending on author choice and funder mandate.

Prior to acceptance there is no requirement to inform the journal that you intend to publish your paper OnlineOpen if you do not wish to. All OnlineOpen articles are treated in the same way as any other article. They go through the journal's standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.
