Petition for open access of government-funded research

Update: I think that the petition will go forward, because it reached more than 26,000 signatures…

——–

A group of people at access2research.org put together a petition to the Obama administration to require that any taxpayer-sponsored research be open-access, this is, to make such research available to the public free of charge. More details are found here.

The White House website for this petition can be found here.

The goal is to have 25,000 signatures. I am # 23,482!

  1. I’m 23,589… As an American taxpayer, I support this whole heartedly… (although I’m an Australian citizen, I pay US taxes on Amazon book sales)
