Extended Deadline for Public Access and Digital Data RFIs

The America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 calls upon the Office of Science and Technology Policy to coordinate with agencies to develop policies that assure widespread public access to and long-term stewardship of the results of federally funded unclassified research.The OSTP has put out two formal Requests for Information; one on the subject of “Public Access to Peer-Reviewed Scholarly Publications” and the other on “Public Access to Digital Data.” The deadline for comments has been extended to January 12, 2012.

The A. R. Dykes Library will be submitting comments to both requests. The library staff is available to provide assistance to any faculty, staff or students who choose to respond.

1. We recommend you tailor your responses to be as personalized and direct as possible. Include examples and supporting documentation where appropriate.

2. This is your opportunity to influence public policy, so please consider taking time to craft a response.
