Open Access Week 2022: An Overview of the OSTP Open Access Memo for Researchers and Librarians
This event is in the past.
On August 25, 2022, the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a memorandum on Ensuring Free, Immediate, and Equitable Access to Federally Funded Research that will make taxpayer-funded research immediately available for the public to freely access and fully use. This new guidance calls on all federal agencies to generate policies that eliminate the current 12-month waiting period for access to the outputs of federally funded research, including articles and data.
Join the administrator of the WSU Libraries’ open access repository for an overview of the OSTP Memo, its import for researchers and librarians, responses from stakeholders, and a look at the possible impacts for the future.
