Public Access to Research Policy for Award

Publish date: 
Jan 2013

The MS Society is part of an initiative led by the Wellcome Trust and a number of other UK biomedical and health funders to establish Europe PubMed Central (Europe PMC). Europe PMC is an online database that offers free access to full-text peer-reviewed research publications to anyone with internet access.

We are committed to open and unrestricted access to results of MS Society funded research. We believe the publication of results in open access journals allows the outputs from our funded research to be publically available to the widest possible audience. For this reason we have a policy statement in place for MS Society grant holders. The policy requires authors of research papers based on MS Society funded research to publish in an open access environment.
