Hypatia Authors

When you publish an article in Hypatia you will receive a complementary PDF from the Wiley's Author Services Center. In addition, the Wiley's copyright policy allows the following for online posting*:

Authors are allowed to post the submitted version of their article online at any time.

Authors may post the accepted version (post-peer-review) of their articles online 24 months after publication. This is the polished manuscript, not the formatted PDF.

Authors may self-archive the peer-reviewed (but not final) version of their paper on their own personal website, in their company/institutional repository or archive, and in not-for-profit subject-based repositories.

Any self-archiving must be done after the 24-month embargo period by the author or by their institutional librarian.

Self-archived papers should link to Wiley's standard terms of use for self-archived articles and not use any form of Creative Commons license.

The deposited version must link to the final article on Wiley Online Library. It should not be updated or replaced by the final article.

*Please note that at no time may authors post the final PDF version of their article online. Authors are encouraged to include a link to their article in the Wiley Online Library on social media sites, subject indexes, and personal homepages.

Authors and institutions also have the option of making articles Open Access through OnlineOpen:

OnlineOpen: Wiley supports a hybrid open-access model through OnlineOpen. With OnlineOpenHypatia authors (or their funding agency or institution) can pay a fee (currently $3000) for the right to make the final published PDF of their article immediately available for free to non-subscribers under terms equivalent to the Creative Commons Attribution Non-commercial License. (For more information, see option three below.)

Reprinting Hypatia Articles

There are now two ways to arrange for permission to reprint Hypatia content. If you have a special request or qualify for special consideration in the assessment of permissions fees, contact the Wiley permissions department; see the first option below for details. Otherwise, for routine requests—including permission to reprint Hypatia content in a new publication (anthologies, edited volumes) or to include it in a coursepack—Wiley now offers an automated permissions system in partnership the Copyright Clearance Center; for details, see the second option below.

1. Contact the Wiley Permissions Department

Wiley Journal Permissions and Reprint webpage: information and request form)

Wiley Permissions Department: permissionsUK@wiley.com

The following are general guidelines that inform decisions made by Wiley when granting permission to reprint a Hypatia article and determining whether, or at what level, a reprint fee should be assessed.

The Wiley permissions department gives special consideration to those requesting permission to reprint Hypatia content (e.g., editors or publishers who plan to include Hypatia content in an anthology or edited volume) if they are members of the Hypatia Editorial and Advisory Boards, or if they regularly serve as peer reviewers for the journal, or if they contribute to other Wiley publications. Requestors should mention any such connection when they contact the Wiley rights office with a permission request.

The intended audience and expected size of the print run for the new publication is not a factor that the permissions department considers when granting requests.

Wiley offers generous discounts to authors from developing countries (as defined by the World Bank’s country classification).

There is no charge for requests to republish up to three (3) figures or 400 words of continuous text quoted from a single journal article, up to five (5) figures from a single journal issue, up to six (6) figures from an annual journal volume, or a maximum of 800 words made up of various quotations. Permission in these cases is granted free unless the use is especially prominent or commercial, for example, if a figure is used as a cover image or for advertising and promotional purposes.

2. Use the Copyright Clearance Center's "RightsLink"

Due to the increasing volume of permissions requests, Wiley has partnered with the Copyright Clearance Center to offer an automated permissions system directly on InterScience. "RightsLink" is for routine requests and would not apply for authors requesting special consideration as members of the editorial board, for example. But in many cases, requestors can clear permissions requests using the service as follows.

Navigate to the abstract page of the article for which you're requesting permission on Wiley InterScience;

Click on the "Request Permissions" link;

Follow the online instructions and select your requirements from the drop down options to obtain a "quick quote";

Create a RightsLink account to complete and pay for your transaction (if you do not already have one);

Read and accept the Terms & Conditions and download your license.

3. Online Distribution and Deposit Guidelines

For authors signing the current Wiley licensing/copyright agreement, the options for making your Hypatia article available online are at the top of the page.

Distribution of submission draft
Only the original submission draft of your Hypatia manuscript may be posted on your own website, a subject-matter archive, or your university’s or employer's institutional repository. When you publish an article in Hypatia you will receive a complementary PDF from Wiley's Author Services Center; you are free to distribute this to colleagues on an individual basis and to use it in your own presentations and teaching.

Wiley supports a hybrid open-access model through OnlineOpen. This allows you, as a Hypatia author, or your funding agency or institution to pay a fee for the right to make the final published PDF of your article immediately available for free to non-subscribers under terms equivalent to the Creative Commons Attribution Non-commercial License.

If you decide to select the OnlineOpen option, please use the links below to obtain an open access agreement to sign; this will supersede the journal’s usual license agreement.  By selecting the OnlineOpen option you have the choice of the following Creative Commons License open access agreements:

Creative Commons Attribution License OAA
Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License OAA
Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial -NoDerivs License OAA

To preview the terms and conditions of these open access agreements, please click the license types above and review copyright license information.

If you select the OnlineOpen option and your research is funded by The Wellcome Trust and members of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) you will be given the opportunity to publish your article under a CC-BY license supporting you in complying with Wellcome Trust and Research Councils UK requirements. For further information on this policy and the Journal’s compliant self-archiving policy, please visit Wiley's site.

Deposit of Accepted Version
We understand that some funders require deposit of the accepted version of an article that results from research they have supported. If you are subject to such requirements and do not choose the OnlineOpen option, the following options may apply.

Funder arrangements: Certain funders, including the NIH, members of the Research Councils UK (RCUK), and Wellcome Trust require deposit of the Accepted Version in a repository after an embargo period.  Please read about the details of funding arrangements. If you have additional funding requirements, please contact the Journal production editor.

Institutions: Wiley has arrangements with certain academic institutions to permit the deposit of the Accepted Version in the institutional repository after an embargo period. Information Details of such arrangements are set out at Wiley's site.
