In February 2013, the White House's Office of Science Technology and Policy asked all funders with over $100 million in research expenditures each year to develop a plan to make the publications and data resulting from federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication.
Those plans are now going into effect, and the River Campus Libraries have a variety of services to help you understand and comply with their requirements. To get you started, the chart below summarizes the requirements for the most common funders on River Campus, or explore this guide to find details on how we can help you make your publications and data openly accessible to the public.
Questions? Contact Moriana Garcia (Science & Engineering) or Lara Nicosia (Social Sciences & Humanities), for more help.
If you're an URMC affiliate, contact Daniel Castillo at Miner Library for more on how they can help you comply with NIH and other funders' requirements.
