OA Petition Reaches 25 000 in just 2 Weeks!

An update on the “We the People Petition” I blogged about last time:
25,000 Advocates Urge White House to Open Taxpayer-Funded Research to Everyone
“We the People Petition” hits 25,000 signatures in just two weeks

Washington, DC – June 4, 2012 – The movement to make taxpayer-funded research freely available online hit a new milestone on Sunday when advocates hit their goal of 25,000 signatures to a “We the People” petition to the Obama administration. The petition,
created by Access2Research (a group of Open Access advocates, including SPARC’s
Executive Director, Heather Joseph), requests that President Obama make taxpayer-funded research freely available.
