In August 2022, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a memorandum calling on all federal agencies to make “articles resulting from all U.S. federally funded research freely available and publicly accessible by default in agency-designated repositories without any embargo or delay after publication.” Federal agencies must all have a set policy in place by 2025, however certain funding agencies will need to have new agency plans ready as early as February, 2023. 

CU Boulder Libraries has created Guidance for Public Access to Federally Funded Research webpage and resources to support faculty and researchers while this process is in flux. Additionally, the Boulder Faculty Assembly is joining up with Libraries and the Research & Innovation Office (RIO) to offer three Listening & Feedback Sessions so that faculty can find out more about how this may impact research grants in their fields and what support is available on campus. Additionally, these sessions are designed to allow faculty provide feedback on what the Libraries, RIO, and other campus units can do to further support researchers. All sessions will be held via Zoom and are open to all CU Boulder faculty and researchers.
