Edit: Negotiations still going on. Materials of both Wiley and Taylor & Francis can be accessed until the end of January.

The FinELib consortium is renegotiating its agreements with two major publishers, Wiley and Taylor & Francis. Current agreements will expire on 31 Dec 2018.

FinELib’s goal in the negotiations is to enable the consortium members to have access to scholarly journals and their researchers to publish open access without increasing the consortium’s total costs.  Unfortunately, both of the Taylor & Francis and Wiley want to increase these costs significantly. Depending on how the negotiations proceed, these potential outcomes could materialize:

  • if FinELib is successful, the FinELib consortium authors may publish open access in Taylor & Francis and Wiley journals in the near future
  • if FinELib is unable to reach an agreement before the end of December, we may lose access to future articles and some of the already published content in these two publishers’ journals
