The U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy Issues Two Requests for Information

The U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy has recently issued two calls for public comment.  One deals with policies for access to peer-reviewed journal articles reporting on federally funded research.  The public input provided through this Notice will inform deliberations of the National Science and Technology Council's Task Force on Public Access to Scholarly Publications. 

The second offers the opportunity to provide recommendations on approaches for ensuring long-term stewardship and encouraging broad public access to unclassified digital data that result from federally funded scientific research.  The input provided through this Notice will inform deliberations of the National Science and Technology Council's Interagency Working Group on Digital Data.  The Working Group is now seeking additional insight from “non-Federal stakeholders, including the public, universities, nonprofit and for-profit publishers, libraries, federally funded and non-federally funded research scientists, and other organizations and institutions with an interest in long-term stewardship and improved public access to the results of federally funded research.”

These calls can be found at:

http://federalregister.gov/a/2011-28623 (publications)

and

http://federalregister.gov/a/2011-28621  (data)

The date for comment on both calls is January 2, 2012.
