15% discount for NHS England authors publishing in BioMed Central’s open access journals

This month, NHS England became a Supporter Member of BioMed Central.
This means that all researchers, practitioners and students working
within the NHS in England will benefit from a 15% discount on
publication fees when publishing the results of their research in one
of BioMed Central’s 200 peer-reviewed open access journals.

The UK Department of Health, responsible for NHS England, has been a
strong advocate of increased access to the results of research,
participating in the UK PubMed Central open access digital archive
project and in 2007 introducing an official policy in support of open access.

NHS England researchers already publish hundreds of open access articles
each year in BioMed Central’s journals, including the ones highlighted
below. We look forward to even more submissions from NHS researchers
taking advantage of Supporter Membership. To take advantage of the
discount, NHS researchers should login using Athens on the payment tab
of the manuscript submission system in order to be automatically
recognized, or alternatively, select NHS England from the pulldown list
of member institutions.
