Final Report: An NSF-Wide Workshop to Explore the Prospects for a Common Response to the Requirements for Public Access to Research Data



This report reflects the deliberations and conclusions of an NSF-wide Workshop to explore the prospects for a common response to the requirements for public access to research data. Representatives of almost all of the NSF Directorates convened in Alexandria, VA, February 22 and 23, 2018, to review a diverse and multi-disciplinary collection of projects and workshops that have been conducted in the recent past. All of these activities were focused on aspects of public access to research data, from broad surveys of entire areas of research to development projects aimed at prototyping specific infrastructure for data access and discovery. Many of the PIs or co-PIs of the various projects attended the workshop or provided material for discussion.
