Funding Agency Repositories/Requirements
In February 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a policy memorandum directing federal agencies to develop policies to make the publications and data resulting from federally funded research freely available to the public. Each funding agency may have specific requirements that could influence data access and storage decisions. More detailed information about funding agency requirements can be found at the links below.
