"One of the world's wealthiest charities, the Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation in Seattle, Washington, is set to launch its own
open-access publishing venture later this year. The initiative,Gates
Open Research, was announced on 23 March and will be modelled on a
service begun last year by the London-based biomedical charity, the
Wellcome Trust."

"The Gates Foundation has, similarly to the Wellcome Trust, contracted
management of its publishing service to F1000Research, an open-access
platform that rapidly publishes papers and data sets after an initial
sanity check by its in-house editors. Papers are peer-reviewed after
publication, and the reviews and the names of their authors are
published alongside."

"Meanwhile, the European Commission has said that it is “preparing the
groundwork” to launch its own open access platform as an “additional
optional service” for the scientists it funds via the Horizon 2020

Speaking to Times Higher Education, Jean-Claude Burgelman, head of the
EC’s science policy and foresight unit, said it was looking at
'existing models such as the Wellcome Trust and Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation” as it developed its own publishing platform to “comply
with Horizon 2020’s open access requirement'."
