Oxford Open automatic deposit at PMC

Posting message from Oxford (with permission). Note also that Oxford is taking article processing fees into account when assessing subscription rates, and has already reduced some subscription fees to reflect revenue from article processing fees.

Excerpt of message from Kirsty Luff at Oxford:

Open access articles published in over 50 journals in the Oxford Open initiative are now automatically deposited in PubMed Central (PMC).

Authors who have paid a fee to make their articles open access in one of our Oxford Open biomedical journals do not need to deposit their article into PMC – Oxford Journals will do so on their behalf. The final published version of their article will be freely available immediately via PMC and also directly from the journal website.

Oxford Journals is depositing into PMC all open access papers that have been or will be published in 58 journals participating in the Oxford Open initiative (a list of journals can be found here:

Regular data feeds between PMC and the journals concerned have been set up. Recently published open access content is being deposited first, followed by older content. You can refer to for the latest information on the status of PMC deposits for individual journals.

We have also prepared some information and guidelines for authors of various funding agencies, which can be found here:

We look forward to continuing our work with PMC to help authors deposit their articles.
