Publishers, Librarians disagreement over NIH Rule

National Institutes of Health (NIH) rule has again hauled controversy from the publishers and academic librarians. The new rule which is now a law requires NIH-funded researchers to submit an electronic copy of their peer-reviewed manuscripts with the NIH for free online distribution through PubMed Central, its digital archive. The AAP is critical of the new rule on economic grounds as scientific research is an important product in the international marketplace and making research freely available undermine the global market for research.
