Europe PubMed Central (Europe PMC)

A service of the Europe PMC Funders' Group working in partnership with European Bioinformatics Institute, University of Manchester, British Library, in cooperation with the NCBI.

It includes content provided to the PubMed Central International archive by participating publishers.

26 funders mandate deposition of research outputs into Europe PMC, including ERC, MRC, Wellcome Trust, CRUK, FWF.

Provides free access to ~ 3m full text, peer-reviewed research papers, + 28m bibliographic records derived from PubMed, Agricola, Patents and clinical guidelines.


How content is added to Europe PMC

Route A: By publishers who make all their content available at the time of publication (e.g. PLOS, BMC, eLife)

Route B: By publisherswho make individual articlesavailable at the time of publication (e.g. articles in hybrid journals )

Route C: By authors who self-archive the author manuscripts in PMC/Europe PMC using the Europe PMC plus deposition service (e.g. articles published in Science)

Route D: By publishers who deposit the peer-reviewed manuscript (authors also have to “sign-off the deposit) (e.g. Elsevier articles for NIH, NPG content for Wellcome [and others])

benefits of a europe wide subject based repository
Benefits of a Europe-wide, subject-based repository

Greater visibility of research findings

All articles in a single repository, fully accessible from PubMed and Google as well as Europe PMC

Research process enhanced

Innovative features - citation networks; articles integrated with underlying data-sets; text mining

Greater compliance with funder mandate

Publishers can (and do) deposit in PMC

Integration with Institutional Repositories (IR’s)

Content can be shared with IR’s

Integrated with ORCID

Integration with institutional repositories (IRs)

Good working relationship with European initiatives such as Driver and OpenAire

  • Driver harvests Europe PMC metadata
  • OpenAire mines the full text articles to retrieve FP7 funding information

Content can be shared with IRs

  • OAI interface available for IRs to pull in relevant content
  • Metadata and OA full text articles pushed to Repository Junction which is working to push articles to the relevant university IR

Win-win situation

  • IRs can still showcase the outputs from their institution
  • Content is more easily discoverable through Europe PMC

Europe PMC Funders’ Group

All Europe PMC funders are represented in the Europe PMC Funders’ Group, which:

Steers the direction of the service

Meets annually to review and approve the annual development objectives

Receives regular updates on development progress

europe pmc services provided
Europe PMC: services provided

Repository service

A fully managed and highly-available, 24x7 web-based repository service

Manuscript deposition service

A manuscript submission system to allow your researchers to self-archive their papers

Publisher arrangements

Arrangements are in place with a number of leading publishers to ensure that all research papers that are funded by a Europe PMC member (and for which an Article Processing Charge (APC) fee has been paid) are automatically made available through Europe PMC. In cases where a funder needs to liaise directly with a publisher (e.g. Elsevier) we can help facilitate this.

Helpdesk facility

Grant holders have access to a dedicated helpdesk facility

Project Management

The service has a Funders’ Group project manager


Support provided to the Funders’ Group

Researchers funded by Europe PMC members receive phone and email support from the helpdesk:

Depositing manuscripts using Europe PMC plus

Linking their grants to their papers using Europe PMC plus

The Europe PMC service and Funders’ Group project managers ensure:

The aims and objectives for Europe PMC approved by the Funders’ Group are attained

Funders are updated regarding service developments

Funders receive support engaging their researchers with Europe PMC and open access

costs operational
Costs - operational

Europe PMC funders contribute to both the operational and development costs of the service.

Operational costs are calculated based on the funder’s annual research spend (ARS) as a percentage of the total ARS of the Funders’ Group.

This table provides some crude estimates to demonstrate the operational costs:

costs development
Costs - development

In addition to the operational costs, Europe PMC funders also make funds available to support the development of the repository.

Funder contributions to the cost of development are calculated based on the funder’s ARS, and equate to roughly one quarter of the operational costs borne by the funder per annum.

For example, a “medium” sized funder which is paying £50k a year to support operational costs, would also be asked to contribute around £12k to support R&D.

Development ensures Europe PMC remains the competitive resource it currently is.


The Europe PMC funders have developed a function-rich and well-used repository

Europe PMC is:

cost effective

will help to increase visibility of research you fund

will provide you with the means of implementing your OA policies
