The Charity Open Access Fund (COAF) is a partnership between six health research charities: VersusArthritis, Blood Cancer UK, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Parkinson’s UK and the Wellcome Trust.
COAF relies on all partners sharing a common open access
(OA) policy. This will no longer be the case from January 2021 when the Wellcome
Trust implements its Plan
S-aligned OA policy. Consequently, COAF will end on 30 September 2020.
