Challenge to NIH Public Access Mandate

Library Journal reports today  that on September 11th, the Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet, and Intellectual Property of the House of Representatives' Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on a bill that could seriously impact the National Institutes of Health's public access mandate.  Tenatively titled "Fair Copyright in Research Works Act" the bill responds to claims by publishers that NIH's policy encroaches on their ability to manage copyrighted content.

NIH's Public Access Policy, which is strongly supported by the library community, ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH funded research.  In July 2008 alone, nearly 4,000 articles were submitted to PubMed Central in accordance with the mandate.
