Full Library Hours
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.

NSF Public Access Expansion
Beginning on March 26, 2018, NSF authors who are jointly funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Energy (DOE) can retrieve previously submitted final manuscripts from the DOE system and pull them into NSF-PAR to meet NSF’s Public Access requirement. When an author indicates they have deposited a record into the DOE E-Link system and a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) match is found, the system will upload it to NSF-PAR for submission. The uploaded record will also be linked automatically to the project report associated with the award. This integration will only be available for jointly-funded publications by NSF and DOE, but future efforts will engage additional agencies.
