Open Access Funding

Timely access to quality evidence is a key component of knowledge translation. We believe that providing free and open access to scholarly journal articles will remove barriers to access and allow a larger audience to benefit from existing evidence. To encourage the development of new knowledge through data sharing, we also support open access publication of research that uses datasets identified in Greo's Evidence Centre.

Authors or research groups must be affiliated with a UK institution and may be awarded funding only once per year. Priority is given to:

  • Meta-analyses, systematic reviews of literature, and scoping reviews
  • Secondary data analyses using datasets listed in the Greo's Evidence Centre
  • Manuscripts that directly address harm reduction
  • Manuscripts that include policy implications for harm prevention, reduction and/or mitigation
  • Researchers who are based in the UK

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis until all awards have been granted, up until November 1, 2021.
