"Open Access for the Future"
Have you ever used a library computer or campus Internet connection to read a research paper, conference proceeding, or federally-funded project report?

Once you graduate or leave your school's campus, all of that research becomes inaccessible, unless you are willing to pay per article (~$30>) or subscribe (~$thousands/year). We are petitioning the Obama administration to mandate an Open Access Policy that requires all federally-funded research to be made available within the public domain. It seems a logical step: taxpayers fund the research, shouldn't they have access to the results?

Please consider signing the White House Petition. It will take 2 minutes, and could lead to a federal change that benefits students, industry, academia, and the public alike!


We will reach the 25,000 signature mark soon, but we want to send a strong message to the White House with 50,000+ that Open Access is the future. LetŐs make the headlines!
