+ - White House Pledges Open Access to Publicly-Funded Research->

Submitted by

Alpert8 writes "Dr. John Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology, released a response today today to a petition on asking for free public access to journal articles arising from taxpayer-funded research. In it, Dr. Holdren acknowledges the importance of the free exchange of information, and on behalf of the Obama Administration, he has written a memo asking federal agencies that provide over $100M in research funding to submit a plan within six months on how they will implement public access. The goal would be to have these journal articles freely available on the internet within 12 months of the publication data. The National Institutes of Health have done a marvelous job of providing access to NIH-funded research, and this policy is in the same vein."
