White House directive calls for open access to research publications
January 2010
SHARING OPTIONS:

WASHINGTON, D.C.—President Barack Obama on Dec. 8 issued a directive specifying actions that should be taken to make government agencies better able to engage with the public, including plans to make data and information from federally funded research available for public access. The "Open Government Directive" released by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) describes the principles of "transparency, participation and collaboration" as the "cornerstone of an open government." As a model, the Obama administration's Office of Science and Technology Policy proposed the open access model adopted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2008, which requires that all investigators funded by NIH submit an electronic version of their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts upon acceptance for publication no later than 12 months after the official date of publication. The administration posted a notice in the Federal Register seeking comments from interested parties on what forms the federal data policy should take.
