New WHO policy on open access

On 1 July 2014 a new WHO policy on open access came into effect.  If you or your institution are funded or partly funded  by the World Health Organization you will need to make any published papers or book chapters open access:

“…articles produced by recipients of WHO funding will have to be published in an open-access journal or a hybrid open-access journal under the terms of a standard Creative Commons licence or in a subscription journal that allows for the depositing of the article in Europe PMC within 12 months of the official publication date”.

Anyone applying for WHO funding can include the anticipated costs of paid open access publishing in grant applications.
