Wellcome Open Research is a new publishing platform that provides all Wellcome researchers with a place to rapidly publish any results they think are worth sharing.

 

Based on the F1000Research publishing model, Wellcome Open Research will make research outputs available faster and in ways that support reproducibility and transparency. It uses an open access model of immediate publication followed by transparent, invited peer review and inclusion of supporting data. It encourages the publication of all research outputs including data sets, negative results, protocols, case reports, incremental findings as well as more traditional narrative-based articles.

 

This 20 minute presentation by Michael Markie (Publisher, Wellcome Open Research) will discuss the aims and motivations for establishing this platform, how it works and the benefits it offers to researchers. The presentation will then be followed by the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the platform.
