On behalf of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the Association of American Universities (AAU), whose combined members include the majority of the nation’s public and private research universities, we write to express our serious concern with Section 308 of H.R. 2146, the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act, and Sec. 501 of S. 1789, the 21st Century Postal Service Act. These provisions, inserted as amendments to the underlying bills in their respective chambers, would place severe restrictions on the ability of government employees to attend important meetings, workshops, and conferences at our educational institutions.

Dear Chairman Clay and Ranking Member McHenry, The purpose of this letter is to provide comments on behalf of the Scholarly Publishing Roundtable to the Subcommittee for inclusion in the hearing record of the hearing held July 29, 2010, entitled “Public Access to Federally-Funded Research.” Members of the Roundtable are also available to meet with the Subcommittee and its staff and to provide testimony at any subsequent hearings the Subcommittee may schedule to consider legislation on this subject.
Dear Dr. DiEullis: I am pleased to submit comments on increasing public access to the results of federally funded research on behalf of the Association of American Universities (AAU). AAU is an association of 60 U.S. and 2 Canadian universities distinguished by strong programs of research and graduate education. AAU’s U.S. universities conduct 57 percent of federally funded research and award 53 percent of the nation’s PhDs. AAU universities are thus major contributors to the international scholarly publishing system as well as primary consumers of the products of that system. As noted in the RFI, increasing public access to federally funded research can increase the return on that investment in a number of ways including expanding access to the results of research for the taxpayers who funded that research and providing a richer, more interconnected foundation of research results to support future scholarship.
Dear Representative: We write on behalf of the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) to express our strong support for NIH’s PubMed Central and our consequent opposition to H.R. 801, the Fair Copyright in Research Works Act.
Washington DC—Four leading associations serving research universities, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Association of American Universities (AAU), the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC), have issued a joint statement, “The University’s Role in the Dissemination of Research and Scholarship.” The statement is a call to action for universities to ensure the broadest possible access to the products of their work.

Dear Chairman Obey: I am writing on behalf of the Association of American Universities (AAU) about Section 217 of H.R. 3043, the FY08 appropriations bill for Labor, HHS, and Education.
Dear Chairman Obey and Ranking Member Lewis: As you and your colleagues begin work on the Fiscal Year 208 Appropriations bills, we respectfully request that you provide at least a 6.7% increase in funding for the National Institutes of Health.
AAU strongly supports efforts to achieve the widest possible dissemination of the results of federally funded research, and the association commends the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for its proposal to increase public access to published results of NIH-funded research. Making research results freely available to the public six months after those results are published should not only benefit the public through expanded access to information but should benefit scientists and advance science through wider dissemination of new knowledge. Moreover, the proposal to archive the results of NIH-funded research in a single national repository will provide a means for an effective, long-term archival preservation of these research results.
