From the European Research Council:
The European Research Council (ERC) announced [Friday] that it will participate in the UK PubMed Central (UKPMC) open access repository service, joining 18 existing UK and European funders.The ERC becomes the third European funder to join UKPMC, following Telethon Italy and the Austrian Research Fund.
The resource is managed and developed by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) and delivery partners on behalf of the UKPMC funders. Over the past 6 years, UKPMC has grown from a simple mirror of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) PubMed Central (PMC) database to a standalone site. It provides free access to over 2 million full-text biomedical research articles and over 26 million citations from PubMed and Agricola, patents from the European Patent Office and UK clinical guidelines. Content is discoverable via an integrated full text and abstract search, and is enriched by both citation information and the application of cutting-edge text-mining approaches.
