NIH Research to be Open Access
:: I guess you could call this breaking news! Paula Park reported today, in The Scientist, that Elias Zerhouni, director of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), "indicated at a gathering of 43 scientific journal publishers and editors Wednesday (July 28) that eventually all NIH-financed research will be freely available to the public." Full-text of Park's report is here. On CHMINF-L, Rob McFarland reacted to this news by writing, "Did anyone know NIH was moving this quickly??? Think of the possible implications!"
