Public Access Policies: Foundations, Charities and Organizations

Funding Organization

Policy

Research funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and appearing in peer-reviewed journal publications must be made freely and immediately available for all. Specifically, the Foundation:

  • require electronic copies of any Foundation-funded research that has been accepted by a peer-reviewed publication be made available immediately upon release, without any embargo period; and

  • require authors and publishers to license such research publications using the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY) (or a substantially similar license to which we agree) so these publications may be freely copied and re-used (for example, for text- and data-mining purposes or creating a translation).

 

The RWJ Foundation allows grantees to include publication costs in their grant budgets.
