Open access update

Leicester Research Archive is now included in OAIster, which indexes the contents of open access repositories. Thanks to them for that.

Nature this week reports moves to encourage researchers to try to keep the rights to their published article, by using documents that can be added to the standard copyright transfer agreement that publishers give them to sign.

And a letter in Science for 7th July looks at the success (or otherwise) of the NIH's policy asking people to place their work in PubMed Central - the uptake has been small, and some things have been archived before the embargo period is over.
