Copyright Author Guidelines

Copyright Agreements

The Economic Journal offers accepted authors the option to make their article available to non-subscribers using Wiley's OnlineOpen service. You can find out more about the OnlineOpen service here.

When an accepted paper has been submitted to the publishers for processing,  the submitting author will receive an email asking them to login to Wiley's Author Services. Here authors will have the opportunity to select whether they wish to use the OnlineOpen service. Author Services will present the author with the relevant copyright form(s) to sign depending on their needs. There will also be the opportunity to make a payment if necessary.
