NOW REPRESENTS OVER 5 MILLION STUDENTS INTERNATIONALLY

Washington DC - The student Right to Research Coalition, a group of
national, international, and local student associations that advocate
for governments, universities, and researchers to adopt Open Access
practices, has now grown to include some of the most prominent student
organizations from the United States and across the world. The recent
addition of 8 new organizations brings the number of students
represented by the coalition to over 5 million, demonstrating the
broad, passionate support Open Access enjoys from the student community.

Additions to the coalition since its launch this summer include: the
United States Student Association (USSA), the National Association of
Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS), the National Graduate Council
of the Canadian Federation of Students, the International Association
of Political Science Students, the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology Graduate Student Council, the University of Minnesota
Graduate and Professional Student Assembly
, the University of Nebraska
- Lincoln Graduate Student Association, and the Student Government
Association of St. Olaf College.

"Our core mission is to protect and enhance students' access to
education," said Angela Peoples, USSA's Legislative Director, noting
her organization's motivation for joining the coalition. "We believe
Open Access plays a crucial role in ensuring that all students have
access to the academic research on which their education depends."
