The Public Access Policies: Other Federal Agencies guide provides policy information and compliance details for non-NIH federal agencies wtih public access policies. Each agency has its own tab.
The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a memo in February 2013 that directed agencies with $100 million or more in annual R&D spending to make plans to provide the public access to results of federally funded research. The plans cover peer-reviewed research publications and digital data sets.
For information on the NIH Public Access Policy, see: NIH Public Access Policy.
For information on the policies of other funding organizations, see: Public Access Policies: Foundations, Charities and Organizations.
Please note: The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued another memo in August 2022 recommending agencies with R&D spending update their public access plans as soon as possible and no later than December 2025. We will update these guides as updated policies become available.
The time before an article will be freely available to the public is typically called the embargo period.
