Congress takes another stride toward public access to research
Date:4/15/2010

d Technology Policy, which issued a request for public comment on mechanisms that would leverage federal investments in scientific research and increase access to information that promises to stimulate scientific and technological innovation and competitiveness.

"This bill recognizes the urgent need and opportunity to use digital technology to increase the pace of innovation," added Elliot Schwartz, Vice President for Economic Studies at the Committee for Economic Development. "The bill is a crucial, welcome move toward advancing research through openness and avoiding making the taxpayer pay twice for taxpayer-funded research it is good public policy."

The introduction of H.R. 5037 was also welcomed by leaders in the higher education community, who recognize this legislation helps to ensure the United States is positioned to continue to fuel education and innovation.

"Conducting critical research that enriches and improves lives has always been a key mission of universities in this country, including Ohio State," said E. Gordon Gee, president of The Ohio State University. "Disseminating the knowledge gained from that research is an equally important part of our institutions' public purpose. The Federal Research Public Access Act will further spread new knowledge, and it has my full support."

"Advancing research is at the core of the mission of higher education, and broadening access to the scholarly record is a critical step in helping research to advance to its fullest potential," added Karen Hanson, Provost and Executive Vice President, Indiana University. "The current system for exchanging the results of research is deeply flawed, and major changes like this bill are required. I welcome the introduction of the Federal Research Public Access Act."
