Federal Agency Public Access Requirements

A Guide to Funded Research Public Access Plans and Processes

Public Access Service

Most federal agencies now require researchers to make final, peer-reviewed manuscripts publicly accessible as a condition of funding. Failure to meet these requirements could affect researchers’ awards now and in the future.

Public Access Service staff are available to answer your questions regarding federal public access requirements and help you to ensure compliance with current policies. In addition, we offer one-on-one consultations, policy workshops, and assistance submitting manuscripts to single or multiple agencies.
