Revised NIH Public Access Policy: Comments on behalf of the Association of Research Libraries

These comments are made on the behalf of the Association of Research Libraries on the revised NIH Public Access Policy. ARL strongly supports the Policy and commends NIH for soliciting comments while moving ahead in a timely manner with this critically important congressionally approved policy. Most ARL libraries support researchers who receive NIH funding thus are collaborating with others to ensure effective compliance with the Policy. As is abundantly clear by the numerous comments filed by ARL members, there is strong support for the revised NIH Policy because it is integrally tied to the mission of higher education.
