Potential Bill to Block NIH Public Access Policy

September 12, 2008 at 7:30 pm 2 comments

Science News posted an article yesterday on the possibility of the introduction of the The Fair Copyright in Research Works Act (HR 6845) which would reverse the NIH Public Access Policy.  Are you kidding me?!  I know that it is a cumbersome process to have to deposit your work, but how can you really tell me that the publisher’s interest are more important than scientific process?  *SOAPBOX WARNING* If you are AT ALL interested in NLP or in the fact that you pay taxes so that this research can be conducted, then I would recommend contacting your representative to oppose this bill.  Shocking.  And the publishers’ arguments on PEER REVIEW?  Please.  Ask any of the PLoS journals if the peer-review process has been destroyed.  I’m appalled.  Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now.
