We the undersigned urge you to reject H.R. 3699, the Research Works Act, which would seriously threaten public access to federally funded research. Internet access to federally funded research allows people with medical conditions to stay informed about new studies and innovations. Access also helps professionals, including doctors, to continue their educations by keeping up to date on the research literature in their fields. Public access is especially important for institutions that do not have the funding to provide professionals with scholarly literature through other means. We call on you to reject H.R. 3699, which puts the interests of corporate publishers above those of people.
