> I'm sure that  many of you will have already seen this - but a petition has been launched by access2research (http://access2research.org/) on the White House website calling for open access to US tax-payer funded research.  It the petition reaches 25,000 signatories in 30 days it will get an official response from the US Administration.
> The petition is here:
> https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/!/petition/require-free-access-over-internet-scientific-journal-articles-arising-taxpayer-funded-research/wDX82FLQ 
> Anybody can sign - you don't have to be a US citizen.  All you need to be is somebody who believes there should be more open access!  Please sign.
