NSF mandates (sort of) open access

March 24, 2015

See here.

NSF-sponsored papers should be freely available no more than 12 months after publication in a journal.

This is not perfect, but a step in the right direction. Computer scientists should insist that conference proceedings are treated the same way, and made freely available no more than 12 months after publication.

Hat tip: Lance Fortnow.
