The Federal Library and Information Center Committee

Meeting Announcement MA2005-19

22nd Annual FLICC Forum on Federal Information Policies

Evolving Information Policy: Open Access and New Constraints

March 24, 2005--Library of Congress--Washington, D.C.

See a draft of the agenda and registration details below.

The increase in electronic publication and the availability of the
World Wide Web provide new opportunities to expand access to literature
resulting from federally funded research and archive that material to
ensure its long term availability. Like open access initiatives in
academia and publishing trends in both the commercial and nonprofit
sectors, the Federal Government is exploring ways to enhance access to
valuable scholarly information resources.

On February 3, 2005 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) officially
announced its policy to make available through its digital repository,
PubMed Central, all final version, peer-reviewed manuscripts reporting
results of research supported in whole or in part by NIH funding.
Beginning May 2, 2005 the NIH will make these manuscripts readily
accessible to the public within 12 months after publication of an
NIH-supported research study--or sooner if the publisher agrees. NIH's
policy builds on the historic mandate of the National Library of
Medicine to promote the broadest possible access to the latest medical
information in order to improve decision making by medical
professionals, as well as patients and their families.

In the words of the NIH policy, "It has long been NIH policy that the
results and accomplishments of the activities that it funds should be
made available to the public...that widespread access to and sharing of
peer-reviewed research publications generated with NIH support will
advance science and improve communication of peer-reviewed,
health-related information to scientists, health care providers, and the
public... The policy is intended to: 1) create a stable archive of
peer-reviewed research publications resulting from NIH-funded research
to ensure the permanent preservation of these vital published research
findings; 2) secure a searchable compendium of these peer-reviewed
research publications that NIH and its awardees can use to manage more
efficiently and to understand better their research portfolios, monitor
scientific productivity, and ultimately, help set research priorities;
and 3) make published results of NIH-funded research more readily
accessible to the public, health care providers, educators, and
scientists...NIH intends to maintain its dialogue with publishers and
professional and learned societies as experience is gained with the
policy."

Though the argument for broad access to health and medical research
funded by taxpayers is particularly compelling, similar arguments could
be made for most government research: Should the public have to pay a
private sector publisher to learn from research supported by tax
dollars?

At the same time, the threat of terrorism and other security issues
have motivated new exemptions from open access. In addition, Executive
Order 13233, issued by President George W. Bush in November 2001 to
implement the Presidential Records Act, authorizes indefinite
restriction of public access to archived presidential documents that,
under previous rules, were largely available to the public after 12
years. The President and Congress continually struggle to achieve the
proper balance between the citizen's right for access to information
and the government's responsibility to protect certain categories of
information.

What are the implications of these divergent initiatives, which on one
hand promise unprecedented access to information generated by government
funding, while on the other, take from the public purview information
historically accessible to all?

The 2005 FLICC Forum on Federal Information Policies will explore the
opportunities and risks of this evolving information environment and
will consider the impact of both on federal libraries and information
centers.
