To make use of the agreement, make sure they meet the following conditions when published with Wiley: On the DEAL ProjectThe DEAL project was launched by the Alliance of Scientific Organisations in Germany, which represents the vast majority of the most important scientific and research organisations in Germany. The consortium has nearly 700 academic institutions, mainly subsidized by the government in Germany, including universities, fachhochschulen, research institutes and public and regional libraries. The project aims to implement national licensing agreements for the entire portfolio of electronic journals of leading academic publishers. Further information on www.projekt-deal.de DEAL and Wiley project have agreed to publish the full text of the contract on the DEAL (www.projekt-deal.de) website at the end of a 30-day transitional period. This period will provide Wiley with sufficient time to meet the Securities and Exchange Commission`s reporting obligations and inform all relevant participants, such as scientific companies publishing with Wiley, of the signing of the contract and the resulting work procedures. Hoboken, N.J. and Munich, Germany-September 29, 2020— John Wiley and Sons Inc. (NYSE:JWa) (NYSE:JWb) and the Open Access DeepGreen project have signed a cooperation agreement to distribute research results published across Germany under the Wiley/DEAL Project open access depot agreement. In January 2019, publisher John Wiley-Sons and the German university consortium Deal announced a three-year contract that allows all DEAL institutions to access the reading of Wiley`s scientific journals until 1997 and allows DEAL Institutions researchers to publish open access articles in Wiley`s journals.
