For such cases, WHO has a standard agreement with John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. to vary certain provisions of this Form (including the grant of a non-exclusive licence). In such a case: (1) the paragraph 'Licence for Publication' will not apply but the staff member must still accept and submit this Agreement; and (2) the staff member should make arrangements for their Director to sign the official addendum to this Form (contact openaccess@who.int with any queries); and (3) the WHO staff member shall then forward such addendum to CochraneLFP@wiley.com to arrange for it to be countersigned and returned to the WHO staff member.

Pursuant to the WHO Policy on Open Access, John Wiley & Sons, Ltd will deposit the Published Version to PubMed Central, which will be made publicly available 12 months after publication.

The addendum, signed by WHO and Wiley, must be uploaded to the Cochrane Licence for Publication in Archie. If you require assistance with this process, please contact the Managing Editor of the appropriate Cochrane Review Group.
