European Research Funders Throw Weight Behind UK Open Access Repository, UK PubMed Central to Eventually Become Europe PubMed Central

From the Announcement:

Four European research funders have today added their support to the open access repository UK PubMed Central (UKPMC) by agreeing that the life sciences research outputs made possible with their funding are made freely available through this repository.

Launched in January 2007, UKPMC is a free-to-access digital archive of full-text, peer-reviewed biomedical and life sciences research. As of February 2010, it holds over 1.7 million full text articles. The ambition of the repository is to become the information resource of choice for the UK biomedical and health research communities and eventually to expand to become 'Europe PubMed Central'.

Today, this aim takes a step closer as four European research-funding organisations - the Health Research Board Ireland and Science Foundation Ireland, Telethon Italy and the Austrian Science Fund - have agreed to participate in UKPMC. The funders will mandate that all biomedical research outputs that arise from their funding are made freely available - typically within six months of publication - from the UKPMC repository.
