What is it?
The VA now requires that those receiving research grant funding from the VA Office of Research and Development take steps to make their publications publicly accessible. Here's link to the policy: http://www.research.va.gov/resources/policies/public_access.cfm
Publications: Effective February, 2015.
Publication manuscripts will be submitted to PubMed Central. Plans for research data have not yet been released.
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."
- The VA has not released plans for research data at this time. Check back soon.
PUBLICATIONS (Journal articles, conference proceedings articles)
- Submit the Author Manuscript version of any research publications which result from FDA funding to PubMed Central. 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.
