Here is another brilliant incentive that all OA supporters are urged
to put on their websites for yet another push to display the strength
of the support for the petition in favour of the EC OA Self-Archiving
Mandate Proposal, now fast approaching 1000 institutional and 20,000
individual signatories:

<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
    <tr bgcolor="#ccffcc">
      <td align="center">
            Please sign the <a href="">EC
Open Access Petition</a>
            in support of the European Commission's proposed
Access Self-Archiving Mandate</a>


This banner (designed by Les Carr and Chris Gutteridge of University
of Southampton's EPrints team) will scroll to show the highlights of the
institutional signatories, a remarkable list. (Thanks to John Lamp for
integrating with the prior banner.)

The petition will continue to receive signatures indefinitely, but to
sign in time to help the Brussels EU conference to display the will of the
European and Worldwide Research community to the EC Science Commissioner

please sign within the next two days (research-related organisations
especially -- universities, research institutes, academies of science
and arts, learned societies, research funding agencies -- are encouraged
to make a show of strength.
