OSTP Request for Public Comment on Desirable Repository Characteristics
Posted: 1/23/2020 ()
The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is seeking public comments on a draft set of desirable characteristics of data repositories used to locate, manage, and share data resulting from Federally funded research. This effort is meant to identify and help Federal agencies provide more consistent information on the requirements for data subject to agency Public Access Plans and data management and sharing policies. Optimization and improved consistency in agency-provided information for data repositories is expected to reduce the burden for researchers. Feedback obtained through this Request for Comments (RFC) will help to inform coordinated agency action. To ensure that your comments will be considered, please submit your response on or before 11:59 p.m. ET on March 6, 2020.
