OSTP Mandate: Public Access Policies for Federally Funded Research

Quick guide to public access requirements from federal funding agencies.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

The NOAA Public Access Policy is in effect as of 2016:

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

NOAA requires funded grantees to:

  • Submit an electronic version of final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts to the NOAA Institutional Repository.
  • Submit data developed with NOAA funding to a NOAA National Data Center if the NOAA program originating the grant opportunity has included that requirement.

NOAA grant programs, at their discretion, may state that reasonable costs of data sharing and archiving are allowed to be included in the proposal budget.
