UK PubMed Central now live

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 grantees.
