Wellcome Trust to launch open access journal ELife

One of the world’s largest research charities, the Wellcome Trust, is to support efforts by scientists to make their work freely available for all.
By changing its policies to promote open access to the scientific research its plans that 100 per cent of its funded research will eventually be made freely available to the public.

Part of this drive will be the publication of eLife, an open access journal that will publish research in biomedical and life sciences. The first issue of eLife will published later this year with the backing of the Wellcome Trust, the US-based Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Germany’s Max Planck Society.
