United Kingdom

Most government funding for research in UK universities is directed through Research Councils UK (RCUK), Wellcome Trust, and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). Those three funders have all adopted mandates for open access dissemination of the research outputs that they fund. Major charity funders include, Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation, both of whom have open access policies. Further information on funding requirements and publisher policies in the UK and internationally are available through the Sherpa/JULIET and Sherpa/ROMEO services.
