Dear Colleagues,

The European Commission, the European Research Advisory Board and the        European Research Councils have recently each recommended adopting        the policy of providing Open Access to research results:
            
http://europa.eu.int/comm/research/science-society/pdf/scientific-publication-study_en.pdf
            http://ec.europa.eu/research/eurab/pdf/eurab_scipub_report_recomm_dec06_en.pdf

http://erc.europa.eu/pdf/open-access.pdf

(Very similar recommendations are also being made by governmental research organisations in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Asia.)

There are non-research interests strongly lobbying against these    recommendations, so a display of support by the research community is        critically important.  A consortium of European organisations working in the scholarly communication arena is now sponsoring a petition to the European Commission to demonstrate support for these recommendations on the part of the European and worldwide research community.

Please visit the site below to learn more, including ways you and your organisation can offer support.

The sponsoring organisations are JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee, UK), SURF (Netherlands), SPARC Europe, DFG (Deutsches       Forschungsgemeinschaft, Germany), DEFF (Danmarks Elektroniske Fag- og Forskningsbibliotek, Denmark).

Many thanks and best wishes,
