Open Access Publication of Scientific Research - FY 2005 Appropriations

Dear Representatives Regula and Obey, Senators Specter and Harkin and Dr. Zerhouni:
Our organizations are volunteer and nonprofit HIV/AIDS treatment, vaccine, and prevention advocacy groups with a long history of community participation in all aspects of government and privately sponsored research to fight the AIDS pandemic. In that capacity, we support at July 16, 2004 House Appropriations Committee recommendation that NIH develop a policy requiring a complete electronic text of any manuscript reporting work funded by NIH grants or contracts be supplied to the National Library of Medicine's PubMed Central. (The specifics of that policy have yet to be announced or commented on publicly.) Furthermore, we support greater efforts to increase open access to medical research/scientific publications, especially for those studies or reviews funded by taxpayer dollars. We understand the House Committee calls on NIH to report by December 1, 2004 on how it intends to implement a policy.
