The Wellcome Trust has a strong policy mandating open access on publications arising from research they have funded. The Wellcome Library has now made funds available to pay the open access publishing costs for research papers, monographs and book chapters that result from research based on the Wellcome Library’s collections.
This new fund is open to those using the Wellcome Library who are not themselves Wellcome Trust Grant Holders. They are making this fund available as they recognise the importance of open access in enabling research to be more widely read, more easily disseminated and more frequently cited.
The Wellcome Library has collections covering the history of medicine, including archival and manuscript material, and much more.
