"The Beginning of the End of Publisher-Society Partner Contracts"

Enter Wiley Partner Solutions. This turns the publisher-partner model on its head. Instead of a full partnership, the publisher now becomes a paid supplier of services and technology to the society. Those services might include sales support and inclusion in Transformative Agreements, of which the publisher will take a cut, but the financial risk once assumed by the publisher now shifts entirely onto the society. Performance of the journals no longer matters to the publisher, as they’ll be getting paid regardless of actual revenues. Journals may get a referral fee for some services purchased by their authors (infographics, videos, plain language summaries, etc.) or rejected manuscript transferred into the Wiley pool of journals.
