The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has been awarded $50,000 from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to help develop the proposed SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE). SHARE is a joint initiative of ARL, the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) to collaboratively build a cross-institutional coordination framework for the long-term management and preservation of—and expansion of access to—the results of academic research. The initiative was made urgent by the February 22, 2013, memorandum from the US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) directing federal agencies to develop draft plans for the public deposit of research articles and data sets associated with federal funding.

PLOS Announces Finalists for Accelerating Science Award Program

PLOS, the Public Library of Science, today announced the six finalists for the Accelerating Science Award Program (ASAP). The program recognizes the use of scientific research, published through open access, that has led to innovations benefiting society. Major sponsors include the Wellcome Trust and Google; ARL and SPARC are also among the program sponsors. Three top awards of $30,000 each will be announced on October 21 in Washington, DC, at an Open Access Week kick-off event hosted by SPARC and the World Bank. As award finalists, these individuals and teams are being honored for addressing a real-world challenge either by reusing previously published open access research or by creating a new repository of freely available research data to assist current and future collaborative research projects.
