In the wake of the publication of the report from the "EU Study on the
Economic and Technical Evolution of the Scientific Publication Markets of
Europe" a consortium of organisations working in the scholarly
communication arena is sponsoring a petition to the European Commission
to demonstrate support for Open Access and for the recommendations in the
report. Signatures may be added on behalf of individuals or institutions.


Please register your support for Open Access in this way. To sign the
petition, please go to



The sponsoring organisations are JISC (Joint Information Systems
Committee, UK), SURF (Netherlands), SPARC Europe, DFG (Deutsches
Forschungsgemeinschaft, Germany), DEFF (Danmarks Elektroniske Fag- og
Forskningsbibliotek, Denmark).
