White House Reports Progress With Federally Funded Research Access

The White House released a blog post celebrating the 3-year anniversary of the memorandum “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research,” which directed federal agencies that spend more than $100 million in annual R&D to increase the public availability of their publications and data. Since the memo’s distribution, the White House asserts that federal agencies have made progress: 16 departments and agencies have released public access plans; other agencies are almost finished with their plans. Additionally, about half of the agencies with completed plans “now require those seeking Federal R&D funding to develop data management plans that describe the data to be collected in their studies and approaches for preserving and providing access to that data.”

For more information, read the blog post.
