Meet Your Award Terms with the Public Access Service
Most U.S. government agencies and an increasing number of private foundations require the published results of funded research be made publicly accessible through federal institutional repositories. These award terms ensure that the results of grant funding are open and accessible, providing transparency and increasing the speed of scientific discovery.
The Public Access Service helps researchers navigate this legal requirement through consultation, training, and submitting manuscripts to funders on behalf of investigators.
