Wellcome Trust strengthens its open access policy

Writing about web page http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/News/Media-office/Press-releases/2012/WTVM055745.htm

The Wellcome Trust has announced that it is strengthening the open access policy for the research it has funded, significant changes include:

  • In final reports the principal investigator's institution "must provide assurance that all papers associated with the grant comply with the Trust's policy". If they are unable to do so the final payment may be withheld.
  • Non-compliant publications "will be discounted as part of a researcher's track record in any renewal of an existing grant or new grant application."
  • "Trust-funded researchers will be required to ensure that all publications associated with their Wellcome-funded research are compliant with the Trust's policy before any funding renewals or new grant awards will be activated."

All three steps will apply to research articles published from 1 October 2009 onwards.

Researchers wanting help to make sure their publications are compliant can contact the WRAP team at wrap@warwick.ac.uk or contact Sam Johnson to get access to the Wellcome Trust fund for open access publication fees.
