Announced today, AMRC Open Research is a new online platform for publishing medical research findings.
The Stroke Association is one of 23 members of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) that are collaborating on the development and launch of this important new initiative.
We hope it will help charities maximise the value of the donations we receive by making it possible for all the findings from the research we fund to be rapidly and openly shared with the scientific community and public.
By removing traditional barriers and delays to publication, and making articles available in a matter of days, rather than the typical months or years that traditional publishing can take, AMRC Open Research could help accelerate our understanding of conditions and diseases that affect so many lives, including stroke.
Dr Richard Francis, Head of Research Awards at the Stroke Association said:
“We want to ensure that all the findings from our funded research, no matter how big or small, are available for all to see. This new platform will enable researchers to disseminate their findings efficiently and transparently”.
