What is it?
The CDC now requires that those receiving research grant funding from the CDC take steps to make their publications and research data publicly accessible. Here's link to the policy:
Publications: Effective July 2013.
Data: Effective October 2015.
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 CDC funding to PubMed Central as well as CDC Stacks. This should be done as soon as the article is accepted for publication. (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.
