Wiley Adds Natural Disaster Clause for Emergency Access

John S. Wiley, Inc., one of the world’s largest publishers of scientific, technical and medical journals, has just announced the addition of a natural disaster clause to its licenses, ensuring continued access to subscribed electronic content for “emergency workers, students, faculty, and academic institutions” displaced in the wake of a local, national or global extreme event. Wiley has previously provided emergency access following Hurricane Katrina, tsunamis in Southeast Asia and the recent earthquake in Haiti; this clause will now extend that protection to all of its managed licenses. The addition of this clause provides an added level of perpetual access protection for electronic content.
