Stanford responds to looming open-access directive

“With the explosive growth in scientific publishing, access to scientific research papers and data has become an increasingly complex affair. Stanford’s Forum on the Future of Scientific Publishing on June 27 brought together a diverse group of stakeholders to exchange information about open access to manuscripts and big data. The Forum was held in response to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) memorandum directing expanded public access to the results of government-funded research.  The February 2013 memo requires federal agencies sponsoring more than $100 million in annual research expenditures “to develop plans to make the published results of federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication… Such results include peer-reviewed publications and digital data.” Furthermore, the memo states that data repositories could be maintained either by the federal government or “scholarly and professional associations, publishers and libraries.” The memo directed federal agencies to provide the OSTP with their draft policies by August 22.” (via Stanford University Libraries)
