A guide to learn about open access scholarship and the Open Access movement
More and more public and private funding groups are instituting open access mandates that require funded research to be made freely available online.
For U.S. governmental agencies, these mandates stem from the 2013 White House policy guidanceand the 2022 White House policy update requiring articles and data from agencies spending over $100 million a year on research be made freely available on the open web. Similar mandates can be found in other national governments (the U.K.'s mandate is a good example), as well as among many private funders. While some of these mandates only require public access to published articles, many require public access to both articles and underlying data sets.
If you have received funding from governmental or other grant agency for your research, you may be required to make your research publication and data publicly available in an approved repository, such as the NYU Faculty Digital Archive.
