The Wellcome Trust supports open access

·
"The Wellcome Trust therefore supports open and unrestricted access to the published output of research, including the open access model ..., as a fundamental part of its charitable mission and a public benefit to be encouraged wherever possible". The Trust now supports the launch of new OA journals and repositories, promises its grantees that it will pay the processing fees charged by OA journals, and encourages authors to retain copyright and make their work openly accessible whenever possible.
