The NIH has finally released the language of its public-access policy:

Policy on Enhancing Public Access to Archived Publications Resulting from 
NIH-Funded Research (February 2, 2005)
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-05-022.html

This is essentially the same version of the policy that I described as 
weakened and watered down in yesterday's issue of the SPARC Open Access 
Newsletter.  I refer you there for my comments on the policy.
