Within the scope of the said agreement, there is an "annual OA article publishing quota". Looking at the data for the last five years, it is predicted that the AE article quotas within the scope of the agreement will meet more than half of the Wiley publications with the TR address.

In the event that the annual OA article publishing quota expires, if the author of the relevant publication wishes to have his article published as an OA, he or the funding agency must pay the APC fee.

According to the terms of the agreement, an “AE article quota allocation” will not be made for institutions. The publication of the author whose article is accepted in the aforementioned journals will be queued in accordance with the "first come, first order" rule, if the author requests it, and if there is a right to publish an OA article in the quota, ULAKBİM will give approval for the article to be published in OA.

Regarding the publications to be supported by AE; It is sufficient for the publications in hybrid journals to be accepted on or after January 01, 2023, and for gold open access journals, they should be submitted and accepted on or after January 01, 2023.

It is sufficient that one of the authors of the above-mentioned journal group and publication type and which has the right to publish an OA article in the quota, one of the authors of the publication to be provided with OA support, and the name of the member institution under the name of the publication.

In case our researchers want to have their articles published as OA, it is important for the AE approval processes to run smoothly when applying for articles to Wiley, and to register their institutional e-mails in the application forms.
