Obama's Open Government Plan Includes Open Access for Research Publications

The White House plans to make data and information from federally-funded research available for public access and use as part of the Open Government Directive that President Barack Obama announced this week.

The administration yesterday posted a notice in the Federal Register seeking comments from interested parties on what forms the federal data policy should take.

As a model, the administration's Office of Science and Technology Policy proposed the open access model adopted by the National Institutes of Health in 2008. That policy 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.
