that both routes to open access are supported for full text content to get into
Europe PMC. Most comes via the publisher (‘gold’) route to PMC from where it is
mirrored to Europe PMC. The repositories also have their own manuscript
submission systems, which enable authors to use the ‘green’ route and archive
their articles directly, if the work was funded by one of our funders. Any
content generated via this route is mirrored back to PMC and vice versa.
