According to Medical News Today, the National Institutes of Health "on Friday proposed a major policy change that would make available at no cost to the public the results of all NIH-funded research six months after the work is published in a scientific journal, the Washington Post reports."
- Scientific journals, some of which sell subscriptions for thousands of dollars, currently retain control over the published information. The proposal, which NIH has been considering for more than a year, would require federally funded researchers to submit their papers to the agency after they have been accepted for publication and edited by a journal, the Post reports.
What, if anything, will this mean for journal CME?
