Measure Calls for Wider Access to Federally Financed Research

June 26, 2003

A group challenging the power of established scientific journals says 
legislation will be introduced to make the results of all federally financed 
research available to the public. 

The group, the Public Library of Science, which includes scientists, doctors, 
researchers and their public supporters, plans to announce legislation on 
Thursday that would give taxpayers greater access to scientific data.
