What is it?
NOAA now requires that those receiving NOAA research grant funding will take steps to make their publications and research data publicly accessible. Here's link to the plan:
Publications: Estimate Fiscal Year 2016
Data: Estimate Fiscal Year 2016
Publication manuscripts will be submitted to the NOAA Institutional Repository, which has yet to be developed. NOAA will also work with the CDC Stacks system to make papers searchable. The Data Management Plan (DMP) should include a repository where the data will be deposited, which may include existing NOAA data centers.
This plan was developed in response to the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy’s (OSTP) February 22, 2013 memorandum, “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research."
- Include a Data Management Plan (DMP) in the grant proposal, which names an open access repository where the data will be deposited by the researcher.
PUBLICATIONS (Journal articles, conference proceedings articles)
- Submit the Author Manuscript version of any research publications which result from NOAA funding to the NOAA Institutional Repository, which is forthcoming. (The author manuscript version is the author's own copy of the peer reviewed manuscript, unformatted by the publisher).
If you have any questions about complying with a federal publication policy, please contact Fred Rascoe. If you have any questions about complying with a federal research data policy, please contact Susan Parham.
If you have any questions about your grant proposal, your award, your funding agency, or other logistical questions, please contact the Office of Sponsored Programs.
