    note to moderators: although this would normally go in the advocacy forum, here seems the right place to post as paywalls are a huge problem for those of us interested in the Latest Research.

    Fed up of not being able to access that key paper?
    Please sign the petition for Open Acces to Federal Government-funded research

    ETA: you need to register with the site, but that only involves entering first name/last name and email address. That's it.

    I believe we can only sign once and I've already signed. If anyone knows different, please let me know.

    Thanks for posting. I believe this should be an inherent right!

    Just to say this has now reached the minimum target of 25,000 signatories which means it will at least pass across the desk of the Chief of Staff - thanks to all those who have signed to date.The petition remains open until19 June and the more that sign the more weight it will carry, so please do sign it if you haven't already. Thanks.

    Please sign the petition
