US Department of Energy Public Access PlanAugust 5th, 2014 by Kimberly Hoffman
The Department of Energy (DOE) has implemented their own Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science (DOE PAGES – Beta) as a repository for federally funded research.
In US Department of Energy Announces Public Access Plan (David Crotty, Aug. 4, 2014), copyright issues, text and data mining access, and use of data management principles are discussed. These issues and more will need to evolve through communication and practice.
Will the DOE Public Access Plan constitute “major shift in the scholarly publishing landscape” as Crotty writes?
Update: From DOE/Office of Scientific and Technical Information
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science has issued a “Statement on Digital Data Management“<http://science.energy.gov/funding-opportunities/digital-data-management/>. The new requirements regarding management of digital research data will appear in funding solicitations and invitations issued by the Office of Science beginning Oct. 1, 2014. Other Energy Department research offices will implement data management plan requirements within the next year.
