ScienceOpen for Funders

Open access journals are changing the rules of the game in more ways than just making research freely accessible. Increasingly, funding bodies are starting their own open access publishing outlets to provide low-cost, high quality journal alternatives for the research they fund. The rise of preprints in the last years has also changed the ways in which researchers are communicating their results and funders are stepping up by acknowledging preprints in grant applications.
