Waivers and Discounts on Article Publication Charges

For authors publishing in Wiley Open Access journals, Wiley offers waivers and discounts to authors based in developing countries.

To ensure that editorial decisions are never influenced by ability to pay, it is Wiley policy that editors of open access journals are not involved in correspondence with authors regarding payment of article publication charges (APCs). The automatic waiver system will be managed by administrative staff not involved in decisions regarding article acceptance. We ask authors not to discuss any issues concerning payment with editors.

In addition to the Research4Life countries listed below, some journals may offer additional waiver initiatives. These additional waivers will be managed by the editors and may be discussed with them.
