The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research Goes OA

SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) reports that the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research adopted an OA policy. “As of March 2, the foundation requires that all articles resulting from work it has funded be published in a preprint repository, then in an open access forum under the Creative Commons license (CC BY 4.0) or equivalent license. The policy also mandates any data, code or software needed for independent verification of research results also be made freely available in an open repository.”

The foundation will cover the article-processing charges (APCs). It “requires grantees to provide proof of compliance, and adherence to the policy is required for subsequent funding.”
