"This model has been running on F1000Research since its inception in 2013. It is also used by Wellcome Open Research for Wellcome grant holders, and Gates Open Research for grantees of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which were launched in November 2016 and November 2017, respectively. Several other funders and research organisations, such as the HRB Ireland and the African Academy of Sciences, and institutions such as the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, have started, or are setting up, publishing platforms within Open Research Central. Details of the publishing model, as well as author guidelines and policies can be found on each platform.
The model continues to evolve through ongoing consultation with a wide variety of stakeholders, including numerous researchers across scientific disciplines, research funders, institutions, policy makers, and others.
Open Research Central has engaged F1000 Services Limited to maintain this portal.
The governance structure for Open Research Central is currently being assembled which will comprise broad representation from across the international research community, from research funding agencies to research institutions to researchers themselves...."
