In February 2013, the Executive Office of the President's Office of Science and Technology Policy published a memo entitled "Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research," which directs funding agencies with an annual R&D budget over $100 million to develop a public access plan for disseminating the results of their research. ICPSR strongly supports this memorandum and feels it will "promote re-use of scientific data, maximize the return on investments in data collection, and prevent the loss of thousands of potentially valuable datasets."
ICPSR currently partners with several federal agencies to help them fulfill the mandate to provide open access to results of federally funded research. These agencies leverage ICPSR's capacity to curate, preserve, and disseminate data efficiently.
To help these and other federal agencies develop their public access plans, ICPSR is providing guidance on how to meet the requirements laid out in the memo.
This webinar will cover the data portion of the memo, explain the 13 elements for a public access plan, and discuss resources and options to successfully address the elements. A review of public access projects at ICPSR already meeting requirements will also be undertaken.
This webinar will be presented by:
-Jared Lyle, Director of Curation Services, ICPSR -Amy Pienta, Director, National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program; Director of Acquisitions, ICPSR
This webinar is free and open to the public. Please forward this invitation to all who may be interested.
