Europe PMC Gains New OA Research
gavinbaker's bookmarks 2014-07-11
"WHO (World Health Organization) announced an open access (OA) policy in January 2014 that now applies to all WHO research published in external books and journals. All articles published by WHO staff members or WHO funding recipients must appear in an OA or hybrid-OA journal that has a standard Creative Commons license or deposits the content in Europe PubMed Central (Europe PMC) within 12 months of its official publication date. 'WHO’s open access policy is central to our commitment to universal access to information. Europe PMC will provide the platform for researchers to freely access and reuse WHO-authored and WHO-funded research, for the benefit of global health,' says Marie-Paule Kieny, WHO’s assistant director-general of health systems and innovation. With the adoption of its OA policy, WHO became the 26th funding member of Europe PMC, which provides free access to almost 3 million full-text biomedical research articles."
