Research funders renew commitment to transforming science publishing
eLife has announced that its three founders, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the Max Planck Society, and the Wellcome Trust are extending their support for the non-profit initiative. The significant new investment affirms eLife successes to date and will boost the organisation’s ambition to help scientists accelerate discovery.
Non-profit eLife receives a second round of funding
eLife aims to make the communication of results more beneficial for the scientific community as a whole, by operating a platform for presenting research that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours in science.
The high-profile, open-access eLife journal was the first, essential step in this initiative. It’s now home to over 1,700 original research articles spanning the life sciences and biomedicine and is a venue for experimenting with new approaches to presenting results of scientific research.
eLife is a unique collaboration between funders and practitioners of research to communicate influential discoveries in the life and biomedical sciences in the most effective way.
