SPARC Federal Data Sharing Policy Webcast

 Registration is closed for this event

 

 

SPARC, in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University Libraries, is pleased to release a new resource for tracking, comparing, and understanding U.S. federal funder research data sharing policies. This free tool, launched at http://datasharing.sparcopen.org, provides a detailed analysis of 16 federal agency responses to the directive issued by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) on Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research. Specifically, the new resource focuses on how these agencies intend to make the digital data associated with the projects they fund available for access and reuse.
 
On Wednesday, May 11th, at 3pm EDT / 12pm PDT, SPARC will host a webcast with the authors behind the resource who will provide their perspective on the data sharing policies, including important points of similarity and difference between agencies. The webcast is open to all SPARC members, and registration is free but required.
