Update from SPARC yesterday:
SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University Libraries, is pleased to release a new resource for tracking, comparing, and understanding U.S. federal funder research data sharing policies. This free tool, launched today atdatasharing.sparcopen.org, provides a detailed analysis of 16 federal agency responses to the directive issued by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) on Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research. Specifically, the new resource focuses on how these agencies intend to make the digital data associated with the projects they fund available for access and reuse.
