ARL Update on the NIH Public Policy Proposal

On September 3, 2004, NIH released a proposed plan to make research articles available to the public free of charge on PubMed Central (PMC) within six months after publication in a scientific journal. In addition to the library community, SPARC and other public interest groups, the Council of the National Academy of Sciences, 25 Nobel laureates, scores of patient advocacy groups, many higher education institutions and affiliated libraries have joined the growing chorus advocating enhanced access to biomedical information. This is an update of that discussion in 2004.
