Public Access Policies

Expanding Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research

On February 22nd 2013 the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) director released the following memo:

"The OSTP hereby directs each Federal agency with over $100 million in annual conduct of research and development expenditures to develop a plan to support increased public access to the results of research funded by the Federal Government.This includes any results published in peer-reviewed scholarly publications that are based on research that directly arises from Federal funds, as defined in relevant OMB circulars (e.g., A-21and A-11)". OSTP Memo

Note: Includes both publications and data generated by grant money from these institutions. Failing to comply to the Public Access Policy of a federal agency has severe consequences which are detailed in each policy. Authors are responsible for ensuring they read and understand the entire policy prior andto grant submissions.
