Defend the Right to Share Your Work

Academic publisher Elsevier recently changed their rules on how authors may share their work. Authors were previously allowed to share their manuscripts through repositories immediately upon publication; now they may have to wait up to 4 years before doing so.

Please add your name and help raise awareness of the struggle to keep knowledge freely available to all. Learn more.
