The 2022 Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) memorandum on new public access requirements for federally funded research has led to a new and more detailed focus on requirements for repositories of all kinds. New opportunities for repositing data and other innovative research outputs (e.g., Jupyter Notebooks) have raised new considerations for both nonprofit and commercial repositories. In this broad-ranging session, federal agency representatives will discuss these topics and emerging guidance such as the National Science and Technology Council document entitled “Desirable Characteristics of Data Repositories for Federally Funded Research.” Presenters will comment on new public access plans submitted to the OSTP, although presenters may not be able to speak to details yet. The speakers will also discuss interagency coordination efforts in the recent declaration of 2023 as the Year of Open Science. The session will include brief recorded statements from Maryam Zaringhalam, Assistant Director for Public Access and Research Policy at the OSTP and Andrea Medina-Smith, Data Librarian at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
