On February 22, 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a memorandum titled “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research” (OSTP Memo). It directs federal agencies and offices to develop and submit plans to OSTP. The public access requirements will be applied prospectively. This plan describes the steps Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) (referred to as CDC throughout this document) are taking to maximize access to intramural and extramural data without charging user fees in response to the OSTP Memo. This plan complies with OMB M-13-13, issued in May 2013.
The CDC public access plan for publications outlines the requirements for the implementation of the OSTP Memo at CDC. The goal of this plan is to ensure that the public has free access to peer-reviewed publications funded by CDC. To reach this goal, authors must have a way to submit their manuscripts into a repository system that allows access to the manuscript and ensures that funded manuscripts are captured. The key points to this plan are the manuscript submission system, document repository, and compliance management.
To collect the manuscripts, CDC will use the National Institutes of Health Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) system for both intramural and extramural manuscripts. This will reduce costs as well as make submission easier for grantees that have both NIH and CDC grants.
CDC will use its CDC Stacks digital repository system for storage and access to peer-reviewed manuscripts. This system already serves as an archival repository for several agency collections. The repository meets all requirements of the OSTP Memo. The system will be upgraded to support a maximum twelve-month embargo. Peer-reviewed publications will also be dual hosted in PubMed Central to increase the distribution and archiving of CDC publications.
To ensure that all funded manuscripts are captured, both intramural and extramural compliance will be monitored. Intramural compliance will be monitored using the eClearance system (CDC system for clearing scientific information for dissemination). Extramural compliance will be monitored through Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs).
