Information about CSO funded projects and Fellowships
CSO aims to ensure the widest and fastest possible dissemination of the research it supports, thereby encouraging the rapid uptake of research finding into clinical practice. CSO is also committed to ensuring that the outputs from the research it funds are publicly available.
In order to facilitate compliance with our open access policy an application may be made for open access publication charges up to a limit of £6,000. This support is limited to papers presenting the methods and/or findings of the study, and which are accepted for publication within 18 months of completion of the project (taken as the date of financial reconciliation). Applications for open access publication charges should be made on Form 6a.
For CSO grants other dissemination costs (such as feedback of findings to research participants or healthcare practitioners, or other decision makers) and costs associated with data-sharing, such as preparation of datasets for archiving or compilation of metadata may be applied for separately up to a limit of £2,000 within six months of completion of the project. Applications should be made on Form 6b.
CSO Fellows are allowed to apply separately for help with costs of attending conferences (one per year, which in the final year can be overseas). These costs do not count towards the £6,000 limit for open access publication charges. Applications should be made on Form 6c.
CSO is one of the funders of this resource which offers free access to biomedical literature resources.
CSO uses the ResearchFish system to collect the outputs from grants and fellowships that it funds. Collection of such information is vital in order for CSO to be able to demonstrate the value of the research it funds and highlight case studies of where a genuine impact on the health service has been realised.
