SPARC Federal Article & Data Sharing Policy Resource

Open Access   ·   Open Data

SPARC’s integrated policy resource can be used by researchers, librarians, policy makers, and other stakeholders to explore and compare agency plans for sharing articles and data. This analysis provides a tool for tracking practical information that can be used by active or prospective grant awardees to understand when, how, and where they need to make their research results accessible.

The comparison tool at researchsharing.sparcopen.org is temporarily down for required maintenance; however, the analysis for each federal agency’s article and data sharing policy can be accessed in the two spreadsheets linked below.
