UCL Discovery is an open access repository. Staff at UCL’s partner NHS Trusts can use UCL Discovery Plus to make their publications freely available online (copyright permitting) - including articles, datasets, conference proceedings, book chapters, working papers, reports and more. Open access can maximise the visibility of research and papers deposited here will be found by a Google search, as well as by searching the repository directly.

UCL's partner NHS Trusts, authors wishing to submit an article to BMJ Case Reports for publication should contact their site library for the relevant fellowship code.
