CMCB is committed to open science. Our scientists strive to make all of the following available openly:


Our papers are available as open access (at least green, preferably gold OA). Many of our scientists publish their papers before publication as preprints.


Our scientists develop software for image analysis and other tools. Our central CMCB GitHub site collects these software projects.


The Warwick Open Source Microscope (WOSM) is our major open source hardware development project.


We support sharing of scientific imaging data through our OMERO database, managed by CAMDU.


CMCB Statement on Preprints

CMCB supports the efforts of scientists who wish to accelerate communication of their research via the use of preprints.

We encourage people applying for research positions within CMCB to use preprints as evidence of their productivity.
