“In July 2017, the Wellcome Trust updated their policy on the management and sharing of research outputs. This policy helps deliver Wellcome’s mission – to improve health for everyone by enabling great ideas to thrive.

“The proposed policy is based on the Harvard model which has been in use since 2008 and has been adopted by over 60 institutions worldwide, including Ivy League universities whose publishing outputs eclipse the numbers published in total in the UK. Under the Harvard model policy, waivers are requested for less than 5% of articles. We are at a loss to understand why, therefore, the estimate is so high for UK authors and why UK authors might be treated differently to their counterparts in existing ‘Harvard policy’ institutions.”
