Alternatives to animal research to be shared openly


The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research has announced a collaboration with F1000Research, an open-access publisher.

The partners intend to create a portal where NC3Rs grant holders can share their research methods. The portal is due to be launched in early 2018, following a consultation.

In a blog post on 29 June, Vicky Robinson, chief executive of NC3Rs, said the collaboration was part of the organisation’s strategy to address the slow speed at which new alternative animal research techniques were being adopted into routine practice.
