  15. DMPs should provide a plan for making all research data

    displayed in publications resulting from the proposed research open, machine-readable, and digitally accessible to the public at the time of publication. This includes data that are displayed in charts, figures, images, etc. In addition, the underlying digital research data used to generate the displayed data should be made as accessible as possible to the public in accordance with the principles stated above. The published article should indicate how these data can be accessed. Individual research offices will encourage researchers to deposit data in existing community or institutional repositories or to submit these data to the article publisher as supplemental information. hOp://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2014/08/f18/ DOE_Public_Access%20Plan_FINAL.pdf

  18. Unpacking Data Complications •  Which data is in scope? • 

    What repository? –  “Use what is currently available” –  “Preferred TBD” –  “Unknown” –  “Other options are under development” –  “There is exploration of a data commons tool” •  What are the benefits and drawbacks of data deposited in multiple places? •  Compliance vs. access vs. preservation •  Who defines what is “effective” / “appropriate” ?
  19. Other Organizations Implementing Open Access Policies •  Alfred P. Sloan

    Foundation •  American Heart Association •  Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation •  Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation •  National Endowment for the Humanities – Office of Digital Humanities
  20. Takeaways •  This is complicated stuff! Even understanding the basics

    is a good start since the landscape is changing so quickly •  Campus conversaBon is underway on this topic – more soon!
