In response to the 2013 Office of Science and Technology Policy memorandum, many federal funding agencies require researchers to make publications and data resulting from their federally funded research available in agency-designated public access depositories.
Here we provide a table of the most common agencies that fund research at Wellesley and that have made their public access plans public. Researchers are responsible for complying with agency requirements.
