Workshop on New Guidelines for Federally Funded Research

Update on Nov. 7, 2022. The video and slides for this event are now available at

The Queens College Libraries is celebrating Open Access Week with a workshop on the new guidelines for federally funded research. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, October 26, 2:00-3:00 PM, and will be online.  Please register to receive the URL information.

In August 2022, the White House released new guidelines for sharing federally funded research. These guidelines aim to ensure public access to research, and if your research is federally funded, they will probably affect your work! 

The new memo goes much further than previous open access requirements by federal agencies. These new guidelines, which will be implemented by 2025, will require that:

  • Federally funded research is made available without embargo
  • Research results be made available in repositories as identified by the agencies
  • Publications be made available in machine-readable forms according to NISO standards to improve accessibility
  • Research data be made available along with the publication (except in cases where this isn’t appropriate)

These guidelines will apply to many more agencies than the previous policies did – so a lot more research is going to be made publicly available when these are enacted.

Ultimately, these guidelines mean your work will be available in new ways and to new audiences.
This workshop will cover what we know about these requirements so far, how they might affect your research and publication processes, and where and how readers might encounter your work. We hope you’ll join us for the workshop!

  1. It will be interesting to see how this works. The last time I wrote an NSF grant, I tried to put in funding to pay to make all papers open-access (as this cost money to the journals) and was told that NSF would not support that because publication to the journal is free (no page charges).
