We have a grant from the Wellcome Trust to pay for the costs of publishing papers arising from research funded by the Wellcome Trust on Open Access. If you have paid to publish Wellcome research on Open Access recently, or plan to, please let us know as we may be able either to fund or reimburse these costs.
We also have a subscription to BioMed Central (covering full costs of publication) and a smaller amount of money to cover the costs of publishing in other journals. The funds currently available are under review and we hope they will be increased in future to help a wider range of researchers to comply with funder policies.
If you have any Open Access queries at all, please get in touch with , the Open Access Manager, or contact .

The Open Exeter team will present “How to Write a Data Management Plan: A Short Guide”, followed by coffee and cakes at the Cornwall campus in April. All researchers and PhD students are welcome to attend this event, which aims to help researchers who increasingly will need to write data management plans as part of their funding applications.
The talk will take place on 23rd April, from 12:00 – 12:30 in Lecture Theatre 1, Peter Lanyon Building, Cornwall campus.
