As a customer-focused organisation researchers are our ‘North Star’ and at the very core of our mission – we are committed to continually act in support of the goals of Open Access, Open Science and the library and research community, to advance research, discovery and learning. We see ourselves as an integral part of the scholarly research eco-system and Ben will outline Wiley’s approach and the role of a scholarly publisher.

What is the role of the publisher in an open science future and what progress are publishers making to support the open science environment? Kathryn’s presentation will highlight and examine some of the key steps that Wiley has made in support of the transition to open access (for example, via read and publish agreements), and will also look at a range of journal-based initiatives that help authors and editors to embrace an open science future.
