====================================================================
NFAIS Webinar: Planning the Future of Public Access to Federally Funded Research

Date: Monday, April 18, 2016

Time: 11:00 am - 12:30 pm (EDT)

Location: Virtual

Registration: http://www.nfais.org/index.php?option=com_mc&view=mc&mcid=72&eventId=505387&orgId=nfais&recurringId=0

====================================================================

What's Covered:

In February 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology
Policy (OSTP), under Director John Holdren, directed federal agencies
with more than $100 million in R&D expenditures to develop plans to
make the published results of federally funded research freely
available to the public within one year of publication (while also
requiring researchers to better manage digital data resulting from
federally funded scientific research).

With the subsequent introduction of the bipartisan Fair Access to
Science and Technology Act (FASTR), which aims to codify into law the
essence of the OSTP public access directive, the federal agencies
falling within the directive's requirements have made significant
progress in meeting the OSTP public access goals.

In addition, while the FASTR legislation continues to make its way
through U.S. House and Senate committee action, it's an important
moment to review how the various stakeholders have addressed the needs
of researchers and government agencies – including what publishers
have accomplished in making U.S. government funded scholarly research
and data more publicly accessible.

In this NFAIS Webinar, three expert presenters – SPARC's Heather
Joseph, CHORUS's Howard Ratner and the National Transportation
Library's Amanda Wilson – will discuss:

* The origin and purposes of the OSTP public access directive and
FASTR legislation

* The latest progress in regard to expanding public access to
federally funded scholarly literature, research and data

* What the future holds for public access policy in the midst of the
upcoming national elections

* How the public access initiative impacts non-profit and commercial
scholarly publishers in the U.S. and internationally

* The continuing effort to index metadata critical for accessing
federally funded research across the spectrum of scholarly publishing

Presenters (listed per presenter order):
Heather Joseph, Executive Director, SPARC
Howard Ratner, Executive Director, CHOR Inc. and CHORUS
Amanda J. Wilson, CENDI Chair and Director, National Transportation
Library, U.S. Department of Transportation

Who should attend this NFAIS Webinar: government officials, scholarly
researchers, publishers, librarians, scholarly society and foundation
staff, information services consultants

Join us for this NFAIS Webinar to get up-to-speed on the public access
initiative with federal agencies in collaboration with the information
services community.
