National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Mandate Becomes Law

From the “E-News for ARL Directors” for January 9, 2008:  “On December 26, President Bush signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2007, which includes a provision mandating NIH-funded researchers to deposit peer-reviewed electronic manuscripts in PubMed Central for broad public access. This important shift in policy—from voluntary to mandatory deposit—signaled Congress’s strong support for increased public access to federally funded research.”
