Summary:

"The third piece of good news is that there is no need to wait for the White House policy to effect change in funding agency policies.

The Office for Scholarly Communication stands ready to help with the process. All you need to do is forward us your articles through our “quick submit” form. Your articles can then join the over 9,000 other articles in the repository that have been distributed well over a million times to grateful readers from every continent on earth...."
