Major New White House Policy on Open Access Announced

John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, issued a memorandum — “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research” — last Friday, February 22, 2013, the first sentence of which states:

The Administration is committed to ensuring that, to the greatest extent and with the fewest constraints possible and consistent with law and the objectives set out below, the direct results of federally funded scientific research are made available to and useful for the public, industry, and the scientific community.

Please see here for the entire memorandum.
