The Wellcome Trust - the lead partner in a group of major UK biomedical research funding bodies (the UKPMC Implementation Group) - launched a tender process this week to identify a supplier to host, manage and develop a UK version of PubMed Central (UKPMC).

Based on the US National Library of Medicine's PubMed Central, the aim of this initiative is to create a stable, permanent, and free-to-access online digital archive of the full-text, peer-reviewed research publications (and datasets) that arise from the research funded by the UKPMC Implementation Group. UKPMC will be fully searchable and provide context-sensitive links to other online resources, such as gene and chemical compound databases.
