Research Works Act Could Challenge Public Access to Federally Funded Research
by Robin Peek
H.R. 3699, the Research Works Act, was introduced Dec. 23, 2011, by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and committee member Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY). According to the Association of American Publishers (AAP) website, "The legislation is aimed at preventing regulatory interference with private-sector research publishers in the production, peer review and publication of scientific, medical, technical, humanities, legal and scholarly journal articles." Put another way, it is designed to thwart activities such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy, which requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication.
