BioMed Central to consider charging authors for paper submissions

granting agencies to maximize the impact of the research they have conducted and funded.'

In addition, academic funding bodies have said they are not adverse for grant funding to be allocated to author publication charges. As Bahram Beckradnia, Head of Policy of the UK Higher Education Funding Council for Education (HEFCE) said:

'HEFCE provides a block grant to institutions, and it is for them to decide how it is spent. The payment of publication fees would be a legitimate use of the grant'.

BioMed Central does not envisage levying author charges until 2002 and until this time is holding a debate on this issue where it will listen to feedback from the community.
