May 10, 2006 by

A coalition of national library associations, including SLA, ALA and ARL, praised the introduction of the “Federal Research Public Access Act of 2006.” The Act is introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) and would require federal agencies with extramural research portfolios over $100 million to make the electronic versions of peer-reviewed articles publicly available via the Internet within 6 months of publication.
