access to information

The right to access to publicly-funded information means that all information, including scientific and social research, that is produced with the support of public funds should be freely available to all. More broadly, access to information also refers to communities or individuals gaining access to information which was previously not available to them, as a result of access to information and communication technologies and/or the internet.

Style information: This phrase should almost always go in lower case unless it is included in the title of an instrument or publication.
