Complimentary access to Wiley journals

One member of each CRG and satellite editorial team is entitled to free access to over 300 health and medical journals published by Wiley. The chosen person  can login to Archie, click on a link to Wiley Online Library, and there browse and access the free content.

By default, the access will be given to the Co-ordinating Editor in each CRG, but this can be changed by a user with the Max permission level for the CRG. In satellites, there is no default, so a person must actively be chosen.

Using access to Wiley Online Library

Any user who has been given access to the Wiley Online Library will have special link in the top right corner of Archie, next to the links to Cochrane Community and The Cochrane Library. The user also has button on the Subscription tab of their Properties sheet.

There are two aspects that control your experience when using the Wiley Online Library:

  1. Full text access to journals. Using the link in Archie only gives you this. The full text access will work for the rest of your browsing session that day, so if you close your browser, you may have to reuse the link in Archie.   
  2. A user profile with saved searches or alerts. This in no way connected to your Archie access.  If you go to the Wiley site directly without using the link in Archie, you can still login to you Wiley profile, but you will not have full-text access  (unless you have this through other means, such as being at an institution that provides this automatically) .     

Within the Wiley Online Library a journal where you have full-text access will have an open padlock icon on its title page.
