Wellcome Trust open access funding

By Lisa K Flint, on 16 July 2009

The Wellcome Trust requires all papers resulting from research that it has funded wholly or in part to be made freely available online. Authors can meet this requirement by publishing in a journal that has a paid open access option, for which the Wellcome Trust makes additional funding available.

UCL Library Services administers open access payments for Wellcome-funded researchers at UCL, and can either make payment direct to the publisher on behalf of the author or can reimburse the department for payment already made.

Further details and advice, along with an application form for all new claims, can be found at:    http://www.ucl.ac.uk/library/wellcome.shtml

Please e-mail open-access-funding@ucl.ac.uk if you have any queries or comments.
