           Cautionary Notes
• Senate Report 110-107 – “The Committee highly
  encourages collaborations with journal
  publishers that would enable them to deposit
  manuscripts on behalf of the funded investigator,
  if all parties agree. The Committee directs the
  NIH to seek and carefully take into account the
  advice of journal publishers on the
  implementation of this policy. In particular, the
  Committee directs the NIH to ensure that
  publishers’ copyright protections are
  maintained…”
        Executive Office of the President
       Statement of Administration Policy
• Public Access to Research Information. …the bill would
  require that manuscripts based on NIH-funded research be made
  available to the public within 12 months of publication. The
  Administration notes that NIH’s current policy … has only been in
  effect for 2 years, and the Administration believes there is
  opportunity for Congress to study the current policy and
  consider ways to encourage better participation.

• The Administration believes that any policy should balance
  the benefit of public access to taxpayer supported
  research against the possible impact that grant
  conditions could have on scientific research
  publishing, scientific peer review and on the United
  States’ longstanding leadership in upholding strong
  standards of protection for intellectual property.

      Petition for Rulemaking
• We therefore request, pursuant to 5 U.S.C
  §553(e) that HHS conduct a public notice and
  comment rulemaking to ensure that all affected
  stakeholders are given an opportunity to
  respond to the proposed plan for implementing
  the new policy which, as directed by Congress,
  must be implemented “in a manner consistent

       Looking into the Future
• Making research available online quickly is
  becoming more common, according the Arthur
  Caplan, the director of Penn's Center for
  Bioethics. In the time-pressured world of
  academic research, 12 months is a very long
  time to wait for free access. Caplan said it's
  likely the mandate will be shortened to about
  six months.
