Two new funders have today formally announced that they have joined the Europe PMC funders group, and in doing so the outputs of the research they fund will be freely available via Europe PMC. This brings the total Europe PMC funders to 26, and marks a steady growth in the open access commitment of research funders.

The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs) is an independent scientific organisation. They support innovation and technological developments that replace or reduce the need for animals in research and testing, and lead to improvements in welfare where animals continue to be used - and by joining Europe PMC, these advances can be shared and incorporated more widely, thus contributing to ethically sound research practise.
We're delighted that WHO and NC3Rs have joined Europe PMC!
Europe PMC is a free, worldwide biomedical and life science information resource. A single search covers all the PubMed abstracts, PMC full text articles, and additional content including biological patents records.
