ICPSR Webinar: Guidelines for OSTP Data Access Plans

Guidelines for OSTP Data Access Plans – Providing Public Access to Federally Funded Research, ICPSR recorded webinar now available

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.”

Recently, on December 9th, ICPSR’s Director of Data Curation Services, Jared Lyle, talked about guidelines for OSTP Data Access Plans and recent activities related to the OSTP memo.
