PubMed Central (PMC) deposition
Published research that is the product of a Europe PubMed Central funder's grant must be made freely available. For these gold open access articles our open access team will deposit the version of record to PubMed Central to help authors comply with their funder's mandate.
Cancer Research UK, European Research Council and Wellcome Trust are among the funding bodies that mandate a PMC deposition if funding has been received. A full list of Europe PubMed Central funder organisations and their open access policies can be found on the Europe PubMed Central website.
We will deposit an article to PMC after it has been successfully made gold open access, and once it has been published in an issue.
Please ensure that funding information is clearly stated in the acknowledgements section of your main article and in the designated field of your application for open access.
Your article will appear in PMC two weeks from the date of deposition, and will then be deposited in Europe PubMed Central after three days.
