New Guidance for Public Access to Federally Funded Research

In an August 25, 2022, press release, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) announced that guidance was issued to federal agencies to make federally funded research freely available without delay. This process will remove a 12-month optional embargo on public access to publications resulting from federally funded research by December 31, 2025. The current NIH Public Access Policy still remains in effect, and submission procedures for PubMed Central (PMC) remain unchanged.
