Author Deposit Mandates for Government Grantees

The NIH mandate is succeeding. Shouldn't all federally funded researchers who produce research articles with federal support have to deposit a copy of those articles in a federal repository or otherwise make them openly accessible?

That question will be discussed at a Public Symposium on Author Deposit Mandates for Federal Research Grantees at the National Academies in Washington, D.C. tomorrow afternoon, January 29, 2009. The symposium, which is open to the public and will be netcast (audio only), will begin at 4:30 EST (Washington, DC time) on the afternoon of Thursday, 29 January. Comments and questions from remote participants will be possible. Information about the symposium is available under "Upcoming Events" on the upper right corner of the website of the newly formed Board on Research Data and Information (BRDI), of which I'm a member.
