I found this petition very interesting, so here I share it in my personal website.. I hope you also agree with the main points…
Christmas is over. Research funding should go to research, not to publishers!
With this statement “Moving Forwards on Open Access“, LERU calls upon all universities, research institutes, research funders and researchers to sign this statement and give a clear signal towards the European Commission and the Dutch EU Presidency.
Please, take a look to the LERU Statement for the 2016 Dutch EU Presidency: http://www.leru.org/index.php/public/extra/signtheLERUstatement/ and maybe think about signing the petition..
