Currently, the National Institutes of Health require that research funded by its grants be made available to the public online at no charge within 12 months of publication. The Administration is seeking views as to whether this policy should be extended to other science agencies and, if so, how it should be implemented.
MLA’s Independent Reading Program (IRP) is designed to provide members with a “virtual” education opportunity. MLA has put together this program to allow members to read journal articles from professional literature, complete an article analysis application, and receive MLA CE contact hours. More
