"In early April 2015, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released the, “NOAA Plan for Increasing Public Access to Research Results” (PDF). The plan details the extensive, long-term investments that NOAA has made in the preservation of and access to digital data and how the plan will build upon the existing data and publication policies, infrastructure, and ongoing work of the NOAA Library. The plan notes that administrative and reporting requirements for researchers will be minimized.
For publications, the plan calls for the research results that are produced by bothintramural and extramuralgrantees to be deposited in the new NOAA Institutional Repository that will be managed by the NOAA Library. The repository will make each final, peer-reviewed pre-publication manuscript publicly accessible following a 12-month embargo. Grantees will be required to specify funding sources using FundRef when papers are submitted for publication. Submitted manuscripts will be required to be in a publicly accessible format such as PDF with Adobe Accessibility Check performed. Metadata for each article will include DOIs for the published version of the article and the end date of the embargo."
