OSTP 2013 & 2022 Public Access Memo Comparison

In August 2022, the Office OSTP published new policy guidance, “Ensuring Free, Immediate, and Equitable Access to Federally Funded Research” as an update to the 2013 “Expanding Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research” memorandum. The new guidance includes a number of updates such as immediate public access to federally funded research and the embrace of information-integrity measures, including persistent digital identifiers. In a significant expansion over prior policy, this guidance applies to all federal agencies with any research and development expenditures.

This comparison breaks down the 2013 and 2022 Office of Science and Technology (OSTP) public access guidance into sections for a quick side-by-side comparison of ten key components, including embargo period, data policies, formats, and metadata expectations.
