White House Memo on Open Access Research

Today, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a new policy memorandum regarding increasing public access to federally funded scientific research. 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.
