Guidelines for OSTP Data Access Plan by ICPSR
ICPSR recently updated their website to provide guidelines for OSTP Data Access Plan. In February 2013, the Executive Office of the President’s Office of Science and Technology Policy published a memo entitled “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research,” which directs funding agencies with an annual R&D budget over $100 million to develop a public access plan for disseminating the results of their research.
“ICPSR strongly supports this memorandum and feels it will promote re-use of scientific data, maximize the return on investments in data collection, and prevent the loss of thousands of potentially valuable datasets.”
To help these and other federal agencies develop their public access plans, ICPSR is providing guidance on how to meet the requirements laid out in the memo.
