* Announcement (cross-posted) *

I just mailed the July issue of the SPARC Open Access Newsletter. This
issue takes a close look at the big step toward OA mandates at the RCUK,
the big step toward an OA mandate at the NIH, and the case for mandating OA
to electronic theses and dissertations. The Top Stories section takes a
brief look at the Royal Society's decision to switch to hybrid OA journals,
the PLoS preview of PLoS ONE and its first-ever fee increase, the results
to date of Oxford's OA experiments, protests within the American
Anthropological Association about the AAA decision to oppose FRPAA, the
Science Commons launch of Scholar's Copyright, some new OA policies at
three research institutions, and more news and comment on FRPAA.
