The Federal Research Public Access Act needs your help

The Libraries' Scholarly Communication Collaborative encourages you to contact our Senators and ask them to support the Federal Research Public Access Act. Below is their contact information; farther below is an excerpt from the call to action issued by SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition).

Thank you for your help!


Senator Al Franken (D)

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D)



Yesterday, Senators Lieberman (I-CT) and Cornyn (R-TX) introduced the Federal Research Public Access Act (S.1373), a bill that would ensure free, timely, online access to the published results of research funded by eleven U.S. federal agencies. S.1373 would require those agencies with annual extramural research budgets of $100 million or more to provide the public with online access to research manuscripts stemming from such funding no later than six months after publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The bill gives individual agencies flexibility in choosing the location of the digital repository to house this content, as long as the repositories meet conditions for interoperability and public accessibility, and have provisions for long-term archiving.

The bill specifically covers unclassified research funded by agencies including: Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Transportation, Environmental Protection Agency, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the National Science Foundation.

S. 1373 reflects the growing trend among funding agencies - and college and university campuses - to leverage their investment in the conduct of research by maximizing the dissemination of results. It follows the successful path forged by the NIH's Public Access Policy, as well as by private funders like the Wellcome Trust, and universities such as Harvard and MIT.

Detailed information about the Federal Research Public Access Act is available at http://www.taxpayeraccess.org/frpaa.

All supporters of public access - universities and colleges, researchers, libraries, campus administrators, patient advocates, publishers, consumers, individuals, and others - are asked to ACT NOW to support this bill.

Superb site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any
forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I'd really love to be
a part of online community where I can get feed-back from
other knowledgeable people that share the same
interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
