Publishing in compliance with the OSTP Nelson Memo: what we know so far

What the event covered

The OSTP Nelson Memo was released in August 2022 delivering guidance for all federal grant-making agencies to revise or develop public access policies to ensure free, immediate, and equitable access to federally funded research. Where are we now over a year later and how can researchers get ready for when the public access policies are implemented?

This webinar covers how getting to grips with open science practices can help researchers prepare to share their federally funded research outputs.

Topics covered:

  • The key points of the Nelson Memo 

  • How open access publishing works

  • The benefits of diversifying your research output now

  • Open science and open data best

  • Case studies on how openness drives real-world impact
