Call to action: Oppose H.R. 3699, a bill to block public access to publicly funded research (Alliance for Taxpayer Access)

We pay for it, so let’s keep scientific research in the public domain. This is a bill to keep it in the hands of big research publishers who charge thousands of dollars for a subscription to newest studies.

A new bill, The Research Works Act (H.R.3699), designed to roll back the NIH Public Access Policy and block the development of similar policies at other federal agencies, has been introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives. Co-sponsored by Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), it was introduced on December 16, 2011, and referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
