We’re delighted to announce that the European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) joins Europe PMC as a new funder. This brings the Europe PMC funder family to 34 members.
EDCTP is a public-public partnership between countries in Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, supported by the European Union. EDCTP exists to accelerate the clinical development of new or improved medicinal products for the identification, treatment and prevention of poverty-related infectious diseases, including (re-)emerging diseases. EDCTP’s approach integrates support for research with the development of clinical research capacity in sub-Saharan Africa.
Researchers funded by EDCTP will join thousands of others who make their published research articles freely available from Europe PMC as soon as possible, and in any event within six months of publication. If your research is funded by EDCTP you can submit your published manuscript for inclusion in Europe PMC via Europe PMC plus manuscript submission system.
Join us on March 16 for a webinar on “Making EDCTP-funded research open with Europe PMC plus” to learn more about the EDCTP open access policy and using Europe PMC plus to deposit research manuscripts, as well as the benefits of including publications in Europe PMC for authors and readers.
