Here is an article from The Chronicle of Higher Education about the Acces2Research petition circulating from the White House's We the People public petition website. The petition is close to getting its required 25,000 signatures. When the number is received, the petition will go to the White House Chief of Staff for a response. The petition asks President Obama to mandate that eleven other federal agencies make their federally funded research results freely available to the public, similar to the NIH mandate that places its funded research resulting in scholarly, peer reviewed articles into PubMed Central.
