"Wellcome insists on open access"

"Wellcome insists on open access." By Stephen Pincock, The Scientist, 19 May 2005.As of October, all new grant recipients will be required to deposit papers with PubMed Central.

"Britain's Wellcome Trust said today (May 19) that after October 1 of this year, all new grant recipients will be required to post any papers arising from the funded research in an open-access repository.

The trust, the United Kingdom's biggest nongovernment funder of life sciences research, said that grant recipients would need to deposit their papers within 6 months of publication, either with the National Institutes of Health's (NIH's) PubMed Central or with a UK version the Wellcome Trust and others want to establish."
