Funding body agreement
Telethon requires all project leaders and workers to make their original research articles freely available online. For more information on the Telethon policy please visit the Telethon website.
Elsevier has made an agreement with Telethon that will allow authors who publish in Elsevier journals to comply with these requirements. This agreement is intended to support the needs of Elsevier authors, editors, and society publishing partners, and protect the quality and integrity of the peer review process.
Telethon funded authors publishing an original research article in Elsevier journals can comply with the Telethon policy by paying a fee to cover the costs associated with publication. Telethon will be directly invoiced by Elsevier (if the publication is consistent with the acknowledged Telethon grant). For information about open access publication fees, please refer to the individual journal homepage.
Upon final publication, Elsevier will send to PMC the final document used to generate the published journal article that appears on ScienceDirect. This document reflects all author-agreed changes that arise from the peer-review, copy-editing and proofing processes. Elsevier will authorize its public posting on PMC, and PMC mirror sites, immediately. PMC and PMC mirror sites will also link directly to the final published journal article, which will continue to reside only on Elsevier’s websites and which Elsevier will make freely available to both non-subscribers and subscribers. Subject to certain conditions, documents published under this sponsorship model may be redistributed and reused.
This agreement with Telethon is consistent with Elsevier’s long-standing record of adapting to meet authors’ changing needs, preserving the quality and integrity of the peer review process, and providing value throughout the publishing cycle. It is another example of Elsevier’s ongoing engagement with scientific and academic communities to explore ways to deliver demonstrable and sustainable benefits for the research communities we serve
