Wellcome’s Open Access Policy Review – Consultation Analysis
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Wellcome has conducted a review of its Open Access policy, with the aim of ensuring that publications stemming from our funding are used to maximise their benefit to health.
Following extensive stakeholder consultation, Wellcome is pleased to make available the core outputs of these activities.
