Online Petition

Posted by Soeren Sonnenburg on November 11, 2009

There is an ongoing Petition that is trying to persuade the German parliament (Bundestag) to make all research publications that are a result of public funding freely available.

A press realease is available from the Coalition for Action "Copyright for Education and Research" from here. Unfortunately it is in German.

Consider signing the online petition Wissenschaft und Forschung - Kostenloser Erwerb wissenschaftlicher Publikationen at the German parliament website. Note that the deadline for signatures is December 22 2009.
