Open access at the Wellcome Trust

It is a fundamental part of our charitable mission to ensure that the work we fund can be read and utilised by the widest possible audience. We therefore support unrestricted access to the published outputs of research through our open access policy.

The Trust’s open access requirement extends to all research articles, scholarly monographs and book chapters. The links below provide more information on the policy including details of how Wellcome Trust grantholders should comply.
