Petitions for Open Access

As a taxpayer, you pay for research via the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health (among others). Why should you (and everyone else) be forced to pay to access the data and the publications resulting from your tax dollars?

Sign the Petition for Public Access to Publicly Funded Research in the United States

Hat tip to Open Reading Frame


  1. Your second link doesn't seem to work. Also, it's not obvious where on the open reading frame he writes about this. I guess I could search harder.

  2. Fixed the broken link. I'm not sure if ORF writes about it specifically. I found the links embedded into the top of his template.
