New opportunities from Wellcome to make ISSF funded outputs open access

Wellcome Open Research is a bold new publishing platform that removes barriers to publication, enabling Wellcome-funded researchers to rapidly publish any of their results from traditional narrative-based articles to incremental findings, methods, datasets and more. All publishing costs are centrally funded by Wellcome, simplifying the publishing process further.

Europe PMC is a repository, providing access to worldwide life sciences articles, books, patents, clinical guidelines and funding portfolios. Europe PMC provides a mechanism for Wellcome-funded authors to self-archive research publications and to link publications to their Wellcome grant.
