  6. 6. PUSH 2018 Study & Report: in partnership with GODAN Of 99 PUSH schools, 15 have open access policies. Most of open access policies provide licensing requirements for sharing scholarly works and allow for faculty to waive the licensing requirements unless the funder requires open access. No school has an open data policy. Open data and data management planning are driven by funders’ requirements for researchers to receive funding.
  7. 7. Both GODAN and PUSH Found Grantees struggle to ensure data quality, effective data management, and provisions to responsible data reuse. Lack of proper budgeting and institutional open data policies hinder processes of opening and publishing data correctly. Lack of clear directives on where to publish and low awareness to access published data create barriers to compliance. This is especially true for researchers without a mature disciplinary repository.
  8. 8. Reasoning for Open Data Requirements Enhance and accelerate research and innovation. Provide more transparency to research. Connect researchers from various locations and disciplines. Increase collaboration opportunities. Help provide solutions to wicked problems.
  9. 9. Funders’ Open Data Requirements White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) executive order and memo of 2013. Many U.S. federal agencies have been requiring open access and open data for awhile.

Open Access and Open Data Definitions • Open Access: • Research articles and information that are free online, coupled with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment. • Open Data: • Research data that anyone can access, use, or share freely available on the internet permitting any user to – download, copy, analyze, re-process, pass to software, and use for any other purpose. • With no financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.
  11. 11. Open Access and Open Data Definitions • Open access and open data are sometimes used interchangeably. • Regardless of how the terms are defined, open data must be released responsibly with clear ownership and licensing. The FAIR Principles, developed by the Dutch TechCentre for the Life Sciences (DTL) specify that data should be • Findable, • Accessible, • Interoperable, and • Re-usable to enhance the ability of machines to automatically find and use the data, in addition to supporting its reuse by individuals.
