NIH to require open access

This news is somewhat old, but I still wanted to share this with the Eckerd community for those who might not have heard. The omnibus bill signed by President Bush on December 26, 2007, included a provision in which National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers will be required to send their published research to PubMed within a year of publication. To read more about this requirement, see the BioMed Central blog post, which includes the NIH text of its policy and links to a public forum on the issue:

Also, here is an article from the Seattle Times.
