Endocrine Society Letter to President Donald J. Trump on Open Access

December 23, 2019

To: President Donald J. Trump

"The current 12-month embargo period, after which all articles are made freely available, works well for all concerned: it allows for the timely distribution of the Society’s journals, online and in print, for researchers, medical professionals, and patients to read the articles not only in the U.S., but also in 171 other countries, including approximately 8,000 non-profit research and medical institutions worldwide. It also allows the Endocrine Society to financially support the continuation of its journal operations, including providing expert peer review that ensures the quality, integrity, and medical safety of the published articles.
Reducing or eliminating the length of the embargo would make it difficult for us to maintain our strong peer review system and our ability to ensure research integrity. Further, an immediate zero-embargo mandate would undercut our ability to bring in revenues from the subscriptions, rights, and licensing of those articles that cover the costs of producing the journals and supporting the Society’s non-profit programs."
