BioMed Central today announced (https://web.archive.org/web/20120610115631/http://blogs.openaccesscentral.com/blogs/bmcblog/entry/hmmi_to_centrally_fund_publications?) that the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (https://web.archive.org/web/20120610115631/http://www.hhmi.org/?) will become a BioMed Central member (read the HHMI announcement here (https://web.archive.org/web/20120610115631/http://www.hhmi.org/news/bmc20070820.html?)). HHMI will pay all article processing charges for HHMI investigators in BioMed Central journals starting September 1.

This announcement comes two months after HHMI started to require (https://web.archive.org/web/20120610115631/http://www.hhmi.org/news/20070626.html?) that all HHMI-supported research has to become publicly available 6 months after publication and at a time when Yale University drops (https://web.archive.org/web/20120610115631/http://network.nature.com/blogs/user/mfenner/2007/08/05/yale-university-drops-biomed-central-membership?) their BioMed Central membership.

In March (https://web.archive.org/web/20120610115631/http://www.hhmi.org/news/hhmielsevier20070308.html?) HHMI announced that all research published in Elsevier journals will be publicly available 6 months after publication, again starting September 1.

Congratulations HHMI.
