UK PubMed Central (UKPMC) is now live and freely available at

Based on PubMed Central (PMC) <http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/> , the
U.S. National Institutes of Health free digital archive of biomedical
and life sciences journal literature, UKPMC provides a stable,
permanent, and free-to-access online digital archive of full-text,
peer-reviewed research publications.

UKPMC is part of a network of PMC International (PMCI)
<http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/about/pmci.html>  repositories. PMCI
is a collaborative effort between the US National Library of Medicine
<http://www.nlm.nih.gov/>  (NLM), the publishers whose journal content
makes up the PMC archive, and organizations in other countries that
share NLM's interest in archiving life sciences literature.

The set-up, maintenance and ongoing development of UKPMC is being funded
by Arthritis Research Campaign, The Biotechnology and Biological
Sciences Research Council, The British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research
UK, The Chief Scientist Office of the Scottish Executive Health
Department, the Department of Health, The Joint Information Systems
Committee, the Medical Research Council and the Wellcome Trust.

UKPMC is a service of the UKPMC Funders Group working in partnership
with the British Library, University of Manchester & the European
Bioinformatics Institute.

As of today the UKPMC database holds over 620,000 full-text articles -
mirrored from PMC in the US, whilst the UK Manuscript Submission System
[UKMSS] - which grantees can use when they need to self-archive their
research papers - contains details of 15000 grants awarded to over 8000
