Access2Research: Global Petition!
I’ve been a supporter of open access research for a long time (Just 2 examples why: My Open Access Success Story and Open access social media guide for pharma) and it was a pleasure to see the announcement coming from the OA community about signing a global petition today.
Sign the petition to require free access over the Internet to journal articles arising from taxpayer-funded research. This will require you to create an account at the White House petition website, confirm the account by clicking on a link in your email, and then sign the petition itself.
Please sign the petition and follow the movement on Facebook.
