Changes to Wiley/Jisc Open Access publishing deal

Due to a higher volume of articles than predicted being published via the Wiley/Jisc Open Access publishing deal, Jisc will be limiting access to the payment of APCs to authors funded by Wellcome, UKRI, Blood Cancer UK, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Parkinsons UK and Versus Arthritis. This change will take effect from 1 July 2021 and will last until the end of 2021. The process for eligible papers will remain the same.  

Unfunded authors will be eligible for a 25% discount on APC costs. If you have any questions about this, please email
