Wiley Research Seminar – Japan 2022

Wiley holds a research seminar for knowledge exchange that has been well received annually and after three years, we are back in person. 

A major trend related to research and publishing is open access and open research. Among them, the movement that has attracted particular attention in the last few years is the worldwide spread of the transitional subscription model ‘Transformative Agreement’, which dramatically increases open access publishing from universities and research institutes. Transformative agreements originated in Europe and have rapidly spread to the United States and the Asia-Pacific region. In April this year, a transformative agreement between four Japanese universities and Wiley began. These changes show that collaboration between stakeholders such as subscribing institutions, researcher communities, research funding agencies, and publishers creates new possibilities in scholarly communication.

Attendees heard the latest developments in scholarly publishing from domestic and foreign experts with the event theme of “Open Research: Now and Future”.
