On 22 February 2013, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a memorandum to the heads of executive departments and agencies, directing them to “develop a plan to support increased public access to the results of research funded by the Federal Government.”

As part of this planning process, a group of cooperating federal agencies has requested that the National Research Council (NRC) Division on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education (DBASSE) organize this meeting to draw in representatives of all stakeholder groups and interested parties.  The purpose of the meeting is to allow those who wish to do so an opportunity to provide input into the development of acceptable models of public access to the outputs of federally supported research and development.

The National Academy of Science, in keeping with its 150-year tradition of service to the nation, will provide an unbiased forum in which all views may be heard.  Time constraints may require that selection be made among the many who will apply to speak; every effort will be made to assure that those who are selected are representative of all viewpoints.  In addition, all written statements that are submitted through this registration site will be passed on to the sponsors (no other written materials will be accepted).

The meeting will be webcast, which means that the proceedings can be followed by stakeholders around the world, and, after the meeting is over, the video will be posted for easy access and convenience.

Questions about the meeting should be directed to: PublicAccess-Publications@nas.edu.
