Open Access News

News from the open access movement

In the round-up section of yesterday's issue of SOAN, I mistakenly said that Michael Geist's inquiry under Canada's Access to Information Act found a lack of interest in OA at the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).  I should have said that the lack of interest in OA was at the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

The NHMRC is an Australian agency which encourages OA archiving for the research it funds.

My newsletter item was summarizing my blog post of May 28, 2007, which got the agency names right.  (What was I thinking?)  My apologies to the NHMRC.  Thanks to Jim Till for his sharp eye.
