Open Access from Digital Library Viewpoint
Johns Hopkins University has recently received two awards through the US National Science Foundation (NSF) that relate to open access issues. The first award is through the NSF DataNet program that focuses on the development of data curation infrastructure and the second award relates to a feasibility study of an open access repository of NSF funded research. Both awards consider specifically the potential impact of open access to both data and publications, particularly as they relate to scientific research and learning across multiple disciplines or domains.
