OSTP Mandate: Public Access Policies for Federally Funded Research

Quick guide to public access requirements from federal funding agencies.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration

The public access policy for NASA is currently in effect:

  • Fully covers published outputs
  • Fully covers data
  • Requires all research proposals to include a Data Management Plan (DMP).

NASA requires its investigators to:

  • Submit an electronic version of final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts to the NIH PMC.
  • Make research data that underlie the results and findings in peer-reviewed publications or the information on how to access the data publicly available.

NASA allows the inclusion of reasonable costs for data sharing in research proposals or project plan budgets.
