Mandate for public access to NIH-funded research has taken a further step towards becoming law.

We are delighted that U.S. Senate has just passed the Labor-HHS appropriations bill containing the provision to mandate public access to NIH-funded research.

We would like to thank the many members of the scientific community who have helped to achieve this important landmark. Your support has played a major role in ensuring that the mandate for public access to NIH-funded research has taken a further step towards becoming law.

But there’s still a lot to do! In anticipation that President Bush will veto this bill, it is as important as ever for the research community to continue to voice support for public access to scientific and medical literature. We will provide more information as this situation develops.

Here’s the press release from the Alliance for Taxpayer Access (ATA).
