Open access to scientific research

open access

Students, teachers, researchers, entrepreneurs, patients, caregivers, and other U.S. taxpayers deserve open access to scientific journal articles arising from U.S. taxpayer-funded research.

This is my belief, and I’m hopeful that enough of us share it and are willing to advocate for open access policies for all federal agencies that fund scientific research.

I just signed a petition to require free access over the Internet to scientific journal articles arising from taxpayer-funded research, and I invite readers of this post to show support.

It takes a minute to sign it! If implemented, open access policies for federally funded research will touch everybody’s education, formal and informal, for life-time.
