    Patients and Carers Granted Access to Over 300 Wiley Journals

    Wiley Will Grant Access to Research Without Charge via patientACCESS

    John Wiley & Sons, Inc., has announced it will join patientACCESS, a new program which offers low-cost access to medical and scientific research articles to patients and their caregivers. From September 2013, 310 Wiley journals will join the international collaboration between publishers, the Association of American Publishers, Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division (PSP), The International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM), and the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC).

    Six publishers are participating in the launch phase of patientACCESS. In addition to Wiley they are the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), Elsevier, SAGE, and Wolters Kluwer Health. Technological support is coming from the CCC.

    Patients and their caregivers will be able to access relevant research papers via RightsLinkTM, CCC's point-of-content licensing program. Papers will be emailed to requestors within 24 hours, following a one-time registration step to verify their status as a patient or caregiver. Wiley will offer papers from the selected journals without charge, while CCC will levy an administrative fee of $3.50 for processing and delivering the paper
