Article Sharing Policy
Wiley supports the STM article sharing principles to enable research collaboration and below you will find details of how authors and other researchers can share articles online, including in Scholarly Collaboration Networks (SCNs).
Collaboration has always been essential to further research progress. In support of this Wiley works with many commercial and non-commercial organizations providing services for the aggregation, posting, and sharing of journal articles.
Wiley supports the measurement of the impact and usage of research articles in a distributed environment. Such measurement data, including COUNTER compliant usage statistics, provides important insights for researchers, publishers, and libraries into how research articles are discovered and used.
Articles can be shared at every stage of publication, and the ways in which this can be done are described below. Pay-to-publish (gold) open access articles can be shared anywhere without embargo as long as the embedded Creative Commons license selected by the author remains in place.
Click on the headers below for full details, and a quick reference guide to what can be shared and where is provided in the table below.
In accordance with the STM article sharing principles, researchers* with legitimate access to Wiley subscription articles may share the articles within private research groups, including those on SCNs which have signed up to the sharing principles.
The private groups must be formed by invitation for a specific research purpose and be of a size that is typical for research groups within the discipline. Sharing of articles must be limited to members of the group only. The SCNs which have signed up to the sharing principles are required to provide COUNTER compliant usage data to Wiley by agreement.
There should be no public posting of final articles other than by agreement with Wiley unless the article is published under a Gold Open Access model.
*Commercial users should ensure that they or their organization have been properly licensed by Wiley or by a third party to share articles in private research collaboration groups.
