03/25/2013 - FASTR: Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act

The Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act (FASTR) was introduced on February 14 in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. FASTR would require government agencies with annual research expenditures of more than $100 million to make electronic manuscripts of peer-reviewed journal articles based on their research freely available on the Internet within six months of publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Manuscripts would be preserved in a digital archive permitting free public access, and long-term preservation. Consider supporting FASTR at http://www.taxpayeraccess.org/action/index.shtml
