Information for libraries

This section has been specially designed to provide librarians with information about Chemistry Central's subscription products and services aimed specifically at the biology and medical research community.

Latest information

RCUK’s open access policy

To help researchers, faculties and libraries understand the policy and how it will affect them, BioMed Central has created a short video and we thought this would be a good opportunity to share it with you.

The video features RCUK open access champions Douglas Kell, and Mark Thorely plus BioMed Central’s Managing Director, Matthew Cockerill.

If you would like help making your funds go further, please contact us for advice.

Visit our new and improved funder open access policy page for more information on open access in your country.

The Membership Program allows institutions to actively support open access by removing some or all of the financial cost from the individual author, when publishing in a BioMed Central, Chemistry Central or SpringerOpen journal.

"Each year, Glasgow University staff publish a growing number of articles in BioMed Central journals, knowing that the journals are of high quality and that their work will reach the widest possible audience."

Tony Kidd, University of Glasgow

"The Supporter's Membership scheme is considered to be very good value for money by the University of Cambridge; our academic community publishes many articles on BioMed Central and the Membership scheme provides a substantial discount (thereby freeing up resources for research and other requirements). The Membership has been straightforward and easy to set up and requires very little administrative effort. It is highly likely that the University of Cambridge will renew Membership of this scheme for the foreseeable future."

Chad Pillinger, University of Cambridge
