"o ensure that research findings are shared widely and are made freely available at the time of publication, Wellcome and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have today (Monday) joined cOAlition S(opens in a new tab) and endorsed the principles of Plan S.   

Initiated by the European Commission and Science Europe, cOAlition S partners are committed to ensuring that all research outputs supported by their funding are available through open access. 

In parallel with this announcement, Wellcome has also published details of its new open access policy, which will come into effect on 1 January 2020.   

This will require all research articles that arise from Wellcome funding to be made freely available at the time of publication. Embargoes will no longer be permitted and funding for open access article processing charges in subscription journals (known as “hybrid OA”) will no longer be supported.   ..."
