Wellcome Open Research is a new open data journal published by the Wellcome Trust with a central focus on "immediate and transparent publishing". All submissions are subject to in-house editorial checks before either acceptance or rejection, they are then entered into a fully transparent and open peer review process; the names and comments of reviewers, as well as author's responses, are included alongside the publication.

At the time of writing this is a very new and exciting journal for Wellcome Trust funded researchers, and is happy to receive submissions from authors who have currently unpublished work/data from previously held grants.
