British (WellcomeTrust) to duplicate PubMed

"The UK version of PubMed Central would be launched early in 2007, said Kiley [head of systems strategy at the Wellcome Library] , and consist of three systems: a mirror of data already held in the US version (500,000 articles), a manuscript submission and tracking system, and an authenticated login enabling people to deposit articles."

"From October 2006, Wellcome Trust grant holders must ensure peer-reviewed articles are deposited in the UK or US version of PubMed Central within six months, either by themselves or the journal publisher. “If the
publisher cannot accept these conditions, grant-holders will have to publish
elsewhere,”Kiley said. “Our preferred route is open access" via Information World
