BioMed Central's Board of trustees

Board of trustees

Some of the world's most respected scientists and clinicians have joined the Board of trustees of BioMed Central. The owners of BioMed Central Limited have undertaken to the Board of trustees that they will continue a policy of unconditional open access for research articles and that any new owner of BioMed Central Limited would have to also guarantee to continue this policy. The Board of trustees would have the right to enforce these undertakings.
