OSTP Mandate: Public Access Policies for Federally Funded Research

Quick guide to public access requirements from federal funding agencies.

Department of Energy (DoE)

The DoE public access plan is currently in effect:

  • Fully covers published outputs.
  • Fully covers data.
  • Requires all research proposals to include a DMP.
  • provide manuscripts and data in digital format to OSTI, using Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science (PAGES).

DoE allows the inclusion of appropriate costs for data management and access in the proposed research budget.

DoE requires DoE-funded authors to provide accepted manuscript (peer reviewed manuscripts or final published articles) links  and metadata to the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) by using the Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science (PAGES)  .
