News from the open access movement

Sunday, January 19, 2003

On December 11, Nature and the Alliance for Cellular Signalling launched the The Signalling Gateway, an ambitious and well-funded project to collect news and reviews and sponsor original research into the signalling pathways within a cell. The Gateway, its funders, and its participating scientists, are committed to making all the project's data and as much of the research software as possible, free of charge for other researchers. The AfCS has been committed to open access from the start. But by joining AfCS to sponsor the Gateway, Nature is launching its most significant experiment in open-access science to date.
