Funding Agency Open Access Requirements

The following tables below summarize major US Research funder open access requirements for publications and data.  The first table was prepared by the librarians at MIT.  The second is a spreadsheet summarizing the Federal public access policies resulting from the US Office of Science and Technology Policy memorandum of February 2013.  It is a crowd-sourced table that attempts to collect and consolidate guidelines from federal agencies related to their plans for facilitating public access to results from the research funded within each agency. These “Public Access Plans” are the result of a US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) memorandum that was published in February 2013. The spreadsheet is largely maintained by academic library-based data specialists, but all are welcome to use it, contribute to it, and share it.
