Open access to all federally funded research

In shared on Feb 25, 2013 by theoryl Tagged: , ,

This is definitely a step in the right direction. Public should never have been denied access to the results of public research.

Official statement: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/02/22/expanding-public-access-results-federally-funded-research

“The Obama Administration is committed to the proposition that citizens deserve easy access to the results of scientific research their tax dollars have paid for. That’s why, in a policy memorandum released today, OSTP Director John Holdren has directed Federal agencies with more than $100M in R&D expenditures to develop plans to make the published results of federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication and requiring researchers to better account for and manage the digital data resulting from federally funded scientific research.”
