History
Manuscript must be deposited in PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication by a scholarly journal and be made publicly available no later than one year after publication in that journal.
“The ability of public [institutions] and others to carry out their mission is dependent upon the ability of our faculty and students to gain access to the knowledge, equipment, and techniques necessary to teach and research at the cutting edge of the disciplines and engage in the practice of those “arts.”   Increasingly, our faculty and researchers have seen limits placed on their access to these critical resources.  Restrictions that limit the ability of public [institutions] to perform their missions make it difficult to fully implement the public good.”


Peter McPherson, On Ensuring That Intellectual Property Public Policy Promotes Progress. EDUCAUSE Review, vol. 44, no. 1 (January/February 2009): 45.
