Open access policy

We are changing the way that we fund the costs of open access. More information will be available here from Wednesday 3rd September 2014.

Arthritis Research UK is committed to ensuring that the published results of its research are made as freely and widely available as possible, independent of the journal subscriptions that their institution offers. It is a condition of funding that all original papers published from research that is wholly or substantially funded by Arthritis Research UK are deposited in the open access repositories PubMed Central (PMC) and PMC’s linked sister repository Europe PubMed Central (Europe PMC) within six months of publication. This policy does not extend to reviews, book chapters, editorials or conference proceedings.
