> Subject: Whitehouse Open Access petition kicking off Monday
>
> Dear All
>
> I wouldn't normally send out a bulk email but there is a big
> opportunity coming up to make real progress on expanding Open Access
> to US Federally Funded Research and in turn to use that momentum to
> move the agenda forward in the rest of the world.
>
> There is a real possibility of action in the US but to achieve this we
> need to demonstrate wide public support through a petition on the
> Whitehouse website. The petition will go live sometime on Sunday but
> we are aiming for a big publicity push to draw attention to it on
> Monday.  The Whitehouse makes a formal response to these "We the
> People" petitions if they reach 25k signatures within 30 days. Ideally
> we'd like to go way through that number and as fast as possible to
> demonstrate the diversity and depth of support.
>
> Anything you are willing and able to do in terms of blogging,
> tweeting, emailing or otherwise activating the networks of people you
> are coupled into, particularly in the US, will make a difference. Our
> aim is to hit the social media channels mid-late morning in Europe on
> Monday and then to build momentum as the sun rises across the US. Feel
> free to forward the information on to people interested and advise
> people that the aim is to keep the powder dry until Monday morning.
>
> There is more detail below but any questions feel free to ping me. I
> will send the URL for the petition as soon as I have it but the
> overall site address is:

> 1. Petition Text (800 character limit)
>
> WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
>
> Require free, timely access over the Internet to journal articles
> arising from taxpayer-funded research.
>
> We believe in the power of the Internet to foster innovation,
> research, and education.  Requiring the published results of
> taxpayer-funded research to be posted on the Internet in human and
> machine readable form would provide access to patients and caregivers,
> students and their teachers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and other
> taxpayers who paid for the research. Expanding access would speed the
> research process and increase the return on our investment in
> scientific research.
>
> The highly successful Public Access Policy of the National Institutes
> of Health proves that this can be done without disrupting the research
> process, and we urge President Obama to act now to implement open
> access policies for all federal agencies that fund scientific
> research.
>
> 2. The Ask to Others
>
> To sign the petition:
>
> -              Have to be 13 years or older
> -              Have to create an account on whitehouse.gov
> <http://whitehouse.gov>,
> https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions
> -              This first requires giving a name and an email address
> and then clicking the validation link sent to that address
> -              Click to sign the petition
>
> 3. Further Context
>
> After years of work on promoting policy change to make
> federally-funded research available on the Internet, and after winning
> the battle to implement a public access policy at NIH, it has become
> clear that being on the right side of the issue is necessary but not
> sufficient. We've had the meetings, done the hearings, replied to the
> requests for information.
>
> But we're opposed in our work by a small set of publishers who profit
> enormously from the existing system, even though there is no evidence
> that the NIH policy has had any measurable impact on their business
> models. They can - and do - outspend those of us who have chosen to
> make a huge part of our daily work the expansion of access to
> knowledge. This puts the idea of access at a disadvantage. We know
> there is a serious debate about the extension of public access to
> taxpayer funded research going on right now in the White House, but we
> also know that we need more than our current  approaches to get that
> extension made into federal policy.
>
> The best approach that we have yet to try is to make a broad public
> appeal for support, straight to the people. The Obama Administration
> has created a web platform to petition the White House directly called
> We The People. Any petition receiving more than 25,000 digital
> signatures is placed on the desk of the President's Chief of Staff and
> must be integrated into policy and political discussions. But there's
> a catch - a petition only has 30 days to gather the required number of
> signatures to qualify.
>
> We can get 25,000 signatures. And if we not only get 25,000, but an
> order of magnitude more, we can change the debate happening right now.
>
> Next week we will publish our petition and the 30 day cycle begins.
> What we're asking you to do is to leverage your personal and
> professional networks to get the word out.
>
> You can do this in any way that makes you feel comfortable. A blog
> post, an email to constituencies, a tweet, a facebook share, you name
> it -  something that tells thousands of people "I support this
> petition, I'm signing this petition, and I thought you should know
> about it too." Because this isn't just slacktivism with a "like" or a
> retweet - people need to go to the White House website, enter their
> name and email address, and hit the button.
>
> Qualified signers must be 13 years old or more, and have a valid email
> address. That's all.
>
> The goal is not just to get 25,000, but to get far more to show the
> White House that this issue matters to people, not just a few
> publishers.
>
> We are launching the campaign on Monday May 21. The petition will go
> live late Sunday night May 20, so that the waves can start in the EU
> and sweep west with the sunrise. We're asking you to turn on your
> networks on Monday morning.
>
> Thanks for considering this. If we can all come together to get the
> word out at once, and stay behind it for 30 days, we have a real
> chance to get access to taxpayer funded research across the entire
> government, and send a signal that the people have a voice in this
> debate, not just publishers and activists.
