The Technical University of Munich participates in the nationwide DEAL contract with the Wiley publishing house. The agreement offers scientists at TUM online access to all Wiley journals as well as new, extended options to publish research results open access.
The agreement now signed includes the following key points:
- Full Reading Access
You have online access to Wiley's complete portfolio of journals via eAccess. It currently contains around 1,700 journals and full texts of back volumes from 1997 onwards.
- Hybrid Open Access
As of 1 July 2019, as an author at the TUM you have the freedom of choice to publish your scientific articles in Wiley subscription journals open access without incurring any additional costs for you personally.
- Gold Open Access
In addition, there is still the possibility to publish in pure open access journals from Wiley. The TUM receives a 20% discount on author fees which are covered by the TUM's Open Access Publishing Fund.
In order to ensure that all publications can be clearly assigned to the Technical University of Munich, it is important that all authors of the TUM use the binding, standardised university affiliation. Please observe the requirements of the TUM Publication Guidelines for all your publication projects.
The costs for open access publications at Wiley are covered through the TUM's annual license fees. The contract runs for three years, after which open access publishing will be invoiced according to the number of papers. Since universities with a strong publishing base, such as the TUM, would then face enormous cost increases, the contractual arrangement with Wiley is still open from 2022.
