AAP PR Campaign against Open Access and Public Access to Federally Funded Research, 2007

Share Share   Print

In 2007, the Association of American Publishers (AAP) launched a public relations campaign against public access initiatives concerning access to federally funded research and open access generally.

The campaign presents an opportunity to engage in conversations with members of the campus community concerning the changes to the scholarly communication system and how this may affect scholarly journal publishing.

ARL prepared two issue briefs (below) to provide talking points for working with members of the campus community regarding this campaign against open/public access initiatives and legislation concerning access to federally funded research.
