Responses to OSTP directive

27 Mar 2015

All: these developments should inform our discussions of the implementation guidelines, Bernard
FYI: after NASA and USGS, NSF has now published its response to the White House OSTP open access memo:
AAAS reported:
Public Access to NSF-Funded Research. On March 18, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced its plan to promote public access to the results of NSF-sponsored research. While the agency is not building its own public archive, NSF states that accepted manuscripts or versions of record must be publicly available in an approved repository within 12 months of publication. Availability signifies that any user can download, read, and analyze the data free of charge. This will apply to “ ew awards resulting from proposals submitted, or due, on or after the effective date of the Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that will be issued in January 2016."
