Wednesday, 31 January 2018· UCL Child Health Open Research is a new publishing initiative that will enable rapid and transparent publication of child health research results by UCL-affiliated researchers. It will be launched by the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH) using services developed by F1000.· UCL Child Health Open Research is part of a shift towards wholly open research publishing, using a model of immediate publication followed by transparent invited peer review alongside inclusion of all supporting data. Publishing data enables reanalysis, replication attempts and data reuse – bringing benefits to researchers and institutions, as well as society more broadly.· UCL Child Health Open Research will be positioned as an alternative means of publication, complementing pre-publication repositories and traditional journals.· A process of open peer review post publication helps limit editorial bias and increase speed of publication.· All publication charges are covered by UCL.· Once articles pass peer review, all UCL Child Health Open Research articles will be indexed in major bibliographic databases such as PubMed (following formal approval of the platform).· UCL Child Health Open Research supports the ICH’s mission to improve the health and well-being of children, and the adults they will become, through world-class research, education and public engagement by ensuring that every part of this research can be published and reaches the widest possible audience, maximising the impact of our work. This ranges from standard research articles, to negative or confirmatory findings, in a way the supports reproducibility and all open access policies required by UCL and various funders.· UCL Child Health Open Research is the first institution-based publication platform to be announced by F1000. It joins the ranks of two funder-based platforms: Wellcome Open Research and Gates Open Research, published on behalf of Wellcome and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation respectively.· UCL Child Health Open Research will help develop a culture of openness and reproducibility in research.

UCL's biomedical libraries support clinical practice, education and research at UCL’s affiliated NHS Trusts as part of our Service Level Agreement. Membership of the libraries is open to all staff of our affiliated Trusts.
The libraries provide study space, access to extensive biomedical and health collections, and training and support. We also collaborate closely with libraries at District General Hospitals to facilitate access to resources for medical students whilst they are on clinical placement.
We continue to develop our support to healthcare through our Library Services Strategy and have played a key role in the NHS-HE Forum,
which works to develop connections between NHS and Higher Education networks
and systems. Visit the NHS-HE Forum and Connectivity Project webpages for the most recent news and information.
