DOE Increases Access to Scientific Research

DOE Has Launched the Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is introducing new measures to increase access to scholarly publications and digital data resulting from department-funded research.

The DOE has launched the Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science (PAGES), a Web-based portal that will provide free public access to accepted peer-reviewed manuscripts or published scientific journal articles within one year of publication.

“Increasing access to the results of research funded by the Department of Energy will enable researchers and entrepreneurs to capitalize on our substantial research and development investments,” said Ernest Moniz, secretary of energy. “These new policies set the stage for increased innovation, commercial opportunities, and accelerated scientific breakthroughs.”

As it grows in content, PAGES will include access to DOE-funded, author-accepted manuscripts hosted primarily by the department’s national labs and grantee institutions, in addition to the public access offerings of publishers. For publisher-hosted content, the department is collaborating with the publisher consortium, the Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States (CHORUS).

PAGES contains an initial collection of accepted manuscripts and journal articles as a demonstration of its functionality and eventual expanded content. Additional metadata and links to articles and accepted manuscripts will be added as they are submitted, with anticipated growth of 20,000-30,000 articles and manuscripts annually. The DOE’s Office of Science also has issued new requirements regarding management of digital research data by Office of Science-supported researchers. All proposals for research funding submitted to the Office of Science will be required to include a data management plan that describes whether and how the digital research data generated in the course of the proposed research will be shared and preserved.

The new requirements regarding management of digital research data will appear in funding solicitations and invitations issued by the Office of Science beginning Oct. 1, 2014.
