Federal Research Public Access Bill Introduced in House

The Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA) has been introduced in the House of Representatives by a bipartisan list of co-sponsors.  The bill would require federal agencies with annual extramural research budgets of $100 million or more to provide public online access to research papers resulting from funded research no later than six months after publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

Similar legislation was introduced in the Senate in 2009.
