SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) (PDF) as a long-term solution for higher education to manage its digital assets. The proposal also serves as a response to the recent White House directive on public access to federally funded research and data. The three associations envision SHARE as a network of digital repositories at universities, libraries, and other research institutions across the US that will provide long-term public access to federally funded research articles and data.Research universities are long-lived and mission-driven institutions that generate, make accessible, and preserve over time new knowledge and understanding. ARL, the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) have proposed the
In February 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, issued a memorandum directing each federal research funding agency with an R&D budget of over $100 million to develop a plan by late August to make the results of federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication. OSTP, in coordination with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), will review the plans and advise the agencies on developing final plans.
Researchers, libraries, universities, and other research institutions have a compelling interest in the success of the White House policy. The directive is integrally tied to and supports the mission of higher education to produce, preserve, and share scholarship. It therefore provides the community with an opportunity to marshal its resources to improve the interoperability of research support systems and maximize the value of research funding.
