Journal Licensing Options

Licensing Options and the Wiley Online Enhanced License

The Wiley Online Enhanced License offers many benefits for library consortia, institutional customers, and your patrons. Facilitate the management, administration and renewal of your journal holdings by using one price list and one negotiation with one Account Manager under one set of terms and conditions.

Step 1: Manage your Core Collection holdings with Wiley

  • Reconcile your core institutional subscriptions with your Wiley Account Manager
  • Convert your current print holdings to Online Only
  • Add other titles which match your research needs at the online only rates to your Core Collection
  • Add newer journals based on FTE pricing
  • Benefit from predictable price increase caps with multi-year licenses
  • Add Deeply Discounted Print at 20% of the list price for your subscribed titles
  • Manage your renewal directly with Wiley or through your usual subscription agent

Step 2: Add unsubscribed journals via Standard or Custom Collections, with predictable annual pricing

  • Gain access to a large number of unsubscribed titles across all subject disciplines or in specific areas through a Standard or Custom Collection
  • Standard Collections consist of a pre-selected list of titles and offer great value for money
  • Custom Collections allow you to pick-and-choose additional titles at a discounted price
  • Consortia may negotiate to share access via a Custom Collection
  • Pay only once for content: fees are based on a percentage of the value of the unsubscribed titles at your institution
  • Benefit from predictable price increase caps with multi-year licenses
  • Receive perpetual access rights to all titles added via your Standard or Custom Collection, for the years covered in your license term

Benefits of the Wiley Online Enhanced License:

We offer allowances so that you can adjust your core subscription holdings to match your institution's changing needs.

  • Long-term sustainability: Through predictable pricing over multiple years and guaranteed perpetual access for paid-for years.
  • Archival access to content dating back to 1997, in most cases, to all titles in your Core Collection.
  • Generous licensing terms: access journals across multi-site campuses and global corporations, with free course-pack use, ILL, and walk-in user access for academic institutions.
  • Account Manager and post-sale support: Work with a dedicated Account Manager and take advantage of marketing resources available to promote awareness and usage in your institution. Tailored online training workshops available on request.
