#N/AA table summarizing the Federal public access policies resulting from the US Office of Science and Technology Policy memorandum of February 2013
2
What is this?This is a crowd-sourced table that attempts to collect and consolidate guidelines from federal agencies related to their plans for facilitating public access to results from the research funded within each agency. These "Public Access Plans" are the result of a US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) memorandum that was published in February 2013. The spreadsheet is largely maintained by academic library-based data specialists, but all are welcome to use it, contribute to it, and share it.

Also of note is their mention in sections 8.3.2 and 9.2 that "metadata for scientific data will include, at a minimum, common core metadata schema" htts://project-open-data.cio.gov/.
