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!
- Title: Understanding New Guidelines for Federally Funded Research

The NSF-wide solicitation on Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) has been revised for FY 2023 and has the submission deadline of December 16, 2022.
Please see NSF 22-632 for details.
This competition may be of interest to mathematics and statistics researchers who are developing software tools and infrastructure, especially if they are working in teams and the tools address the demonstrated needs of a community of researchers.
An informational webinar is scheduled for Thursday, October 20, 2022, at 1:00 PM Eastern time. This webinar will provide an overview of this program and the recent changes made in the solicitation. More details about how to register for the webinar are available here:
This year’s Nobel Prize announcements will take place October 3–10, with one prize announced each day this week and next Monday. Announcements are made in Stockholm and Oslo, and will be streamed live on the official digital channels of the Nobel Prize.
So far, we have the prize for medicine (Svante Pääbo), physics (Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger), and chemistry (Carolyn R. Bertozzi, Morten Meldal and K. Barry Sharples). Keep your eyes open on the remaining prizes, in literature, peace, and economy.
The Office of Research is pleased to announce the two new internal grant programs, the Planning Grant Program (PG) & the Interdisciplinary Research Grant (IRG).
The Planning Grant Program: This program seeks to catalyze collaborative grant-seeking and encourage a culture of multidisciplinary, convergent, team-based science with the potential to transform the University. This program will support multi-college research teams in preparing and submitting complex, large-scale, center-type proposals to external funding agencies and organizations.
Funds will support efforts to tackle complex, multi-faced research questions that are better addressed by teams than individuals. Partnerships across departments, colleges, and disciplines are required. Each team is eligible to request up to $20,000 for an award period of up to one year. Up to 5 awards will be made. Please see the Program Guidelines for more information.
Planning Grant LOI Deadline: November 15, 2021
Interdisciplinary Research Grant: This grant program will support collaborative research in the following significant areas: Climate science, Data science/artificial intelligence, and Public health.
We invite interdisciplinary proposals that address urgent scientific and societal challenges through convergent research (transdisciplinary research with societal impact). The program will fund projects that join expertise across disciplines and stipulate a clear path to new external funding. A minimum of two investigators are required: one PI and one Co-PI, ideally from another CUNY college, school, and/or center. Multi-PI teams are encouraged. The program will fund up to eight (8) collaborative research projects with budgets not exceeding $40,000. Please see the IRG Program Guidelines.
IRG Application Deadline: December 6, 2021
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the programs, please contact the University Dean for Research, Delaram Kahrobaei (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Public Interest Technology University Network is pleased to announce the launch of the Technologist Code of Ethics Mini Challenge. The Challenge aims to support the development of a technologist code of ethics, drafted with care in an inclusive and multi-stakeholder process, by supporting academic institutions to lead round tables on the subject. This opportunity is open to any person on your campus. Please share this announcement widely.
CUNY is hosting the 2022 Fall PIT-UN Convening during October 28-29. See details at
Applications are due Friday, September 23, 2022, at 11:59 pm EDT. More details for this, as well as other internal funding opportunities, can be found at https://www.cuny.edu/research/research-development-programs/faculty-programs/internal-funding/
