A few whiles ago I wrote a post about some legislation making its way through the congress. The basic idea is that the law would direct “the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to provide the public with open online access to findings from its funded research. That would make it so that those who recieved money from the government for resarch, must make those findings ‘open’ 12 months after they are published.
Well, I know many of you have been holding your breath. Many of you have stayed up late at nights, wondering if this legislation has passed. Or if it will pass. Or if it passed already.
Well, wonder no longer. Bush has signed it into law.
Cue the celebrating…
