Vážené kolegyně a kolegové,

kdo by chtěl přispět k tomu, aby se Bílý dům vyjádřil k návrhu autorů petice 
požadující volný přístup k výsledkům výzkumu placeného z veřejných prostředků 
(byť se to týká "jen" US), může tak učinit zde

Dear All

I'm sure that  many of you will have already seen this - but a petition has been 
launched by access2research ( on the White House 
website calling for open access to US tax-payer funded research.  It the 
petition reaches 25,000 signatories in 30 days it will get an official response 
from the US Administration.

The petition is here:!/petition/require-free-access-over-internet-scientific-journal-articles-arising-taxpayer-funded-research/wDX82FLQ 
   (You may have to cut and paste the link as it is rather long.)

Anybody can sign - you don't have to be a US citizen.  All you need to be is 
somebody who believes there should be more open access!

A strong OA response in the US will also help us in the UK.  Politicians here 
take notice of what the US is doing in these policy areas and are keen not to 
fall behind.

Please sign.
