U.S. Repository Network Action Plan 2022-2023

The U.S. Repository Network Action Plan 2022-2023 is guided by the community-developed strategic vision for U.S. repositories and a set of foundational characteristics. The Network is also cognizant of the opportunities of the moment with the release of the August 2022 memorandum on “Ensuring Free, Immediate and Equitable Access to Federally Funded Research.” (For more on the memo, see SPARC’s 2022 Updated OSTP Policy Guidance page.)

The U.S. Repository Network Program Officer and Steering Group have preliminarily identified the following four areas of action for 2022-2023.

  1. Network governance
  2. Relationship building
  3. Desirable characteristics and best practices
  4. Prepare to support U.S. repositories in meeting desirable characteristics and implementing best practices

More detailed information about the action plan will be shared here as it is developed. To be alerted to updates, sign up for the U.S. Repository Network email list.
