The publisher and editors of the Bulletin understand that authors or articles funded in whole or in part by the Wellcome Trust are obligated to post final versions in a Wellcome Trust—approved archive such as PubMed Central (PMC). The Wellcome Trust has acknowledged the substantial investments that editors and publishers make that enhance the usability and value of scholarship. Accordingly, the Wellcome Trust has made available $3,000 per article to authors to compensate journals and publishers for enabling contributors to comply with this policy. In addition to depositing the final version of articles in PMC, the Johns Hopkins University Press will attach to each article the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY), as per the Wellcome requirements.
Affected contributors should notify the editors upon submission. Authors will need to sign a grant of rights form, noting that the manuscript was funded by the Trust. Authors will receive an invoice from the publisher, the Johns Hopkins University Press, and upon publication, the final version of the article will be sent to PMC for posting.
