National Institute of Health-- Public Access to Research

The public will have a new way of reading scientific information due to a new policy at the National Institutes of Health will now requires that all research funded by the agency must be made available to the public through PubMed Central.

For example, here the public can search for the latest research on the relationship between vaccines and autism.

This allows people to read more deeply about these issues and not rely on bloggers and celebrities to report on the research. This open access to research is an important step in gaining a deeper understanding of science.
