Wellcome Trust open access funding

By Anna Di Iorio, on 18 April 2008

The Wellcome Trust (Copyright © The Wellcome Trust)A guide to Wellcome Trust open access funding is now available on the Library website at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/library/wellcome.shtml.

The guide contains a brief explanation of:

• the requirements of the Wellcome Trust grant conditions relating to open access publication;
• publishers permitted by the Wellcome;
• ways of fulfilling the open access requirement (focusing on paid open access as opposed to self-archiving);
• methods of claiming funds to cover open access fees.  

Claimants can now use a form to request payment of a publisher’s invoice for open access fees, or to ask for reimbursement if the publisher’s invoice has already been paid. 

There is also a new e-mail address for queries about open access fees: open-access-funding@ucl.ac.uk.
