Biosciences Federation supports recommendations on paying OA journal fees

The Biosciences Federation has released a statement (April 14, 2009) in support of last month's report from Universities UK and the Research Information Network on Paying for open access publication charges.  In particular, it supports the recommendations that universities launch funds to pay publication fees and that funding agencies clarify when they will pay publication fees.

PS:  Also see our past posts on the Biosciences Federation.  Since 2007, BF has supported the idea of OA journals, provided they are "adequately funded".
