Publishing gold open access
Dunhill Medical Trust - funded authors are free to choose the (gold) open access option offered by Elsevier. Authors can comply by publishing in either an Elsevier Open Access Journal or in a subscription journal via our Open Access Article program.
To provide open access, a publication fee needs to be met for each article published open access. For information about specific open access publication fees, please refer to the individual journal 's guide for authors.
Upon final publication, Elsevier will immediately send to UKPMC the final published journal article (PJA) as it appears on ScienceDirect. PMC and PMC mirror sites will also link directly to this same article on Elsevier’s websites.
All articles published open access have permitted reuse which is determined by the author's choice of user license.
Grants up to £50,000 - £1,000, Grants from £50,000 to £100,000 - £2,000, Grants over £100,000 - £3,000.
Please Note: Applicants are not required to apply for this funding. It will be automatically added to all research project and programme grants awarded by DMT. Grant holders will however be expected to account in their final report for their use of the funding provided and will be required to provide evidence that publications arising from the work funded are available on open access site(s). (see the DMT website).
Please refer to the individual journal's guide for authors for the specific open access publication fee for your chosen journal.
