Research funders renew commitment to transforming science publishing

8/06/2016

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.
