dc.description.abstract What is the Research Works Act? In just 3 pages the Research Works bill seeks to prohibit open access mandates for federally funded research in the USA thus reverting the open access policy of the National Institute of Health (NIH) in the USA. It was introduced by Darrell Issa on 23 December 2011 and has caused major battles between the academic and publishing industries. The bill has the support of Elsevier, Association of American Publishers and the Copyright Alliance. en_ZA
