SAGE welcomes OSTP announcement on Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research

Open Access 0 comments by

Ziyad Marar, Global Publishing Director of the academic and professional publisher SAGE, has welcomed the OSTP Director’s memorandum to Heads of Executive Department and Agencies directing agencies to develop clear and coordinated policies to increase access.

Ziyad Marar said: “SAGE was founded to support the dissemination of knowledge. We welcome the OSTP’s announcement and their approach of setting out policy objectives but not mandating specific solutions and their recognition that embargo periods will need to be set appropriately for each subject area.

“We also welcome OSTP’s recognition of the value of the services that publishers provide. We stand ready to work with OSTP, agencies, the many societies we publish for and other stakeholders to help create sustainable solutions that increase access and dissemination while maintaining the many existing valuable attributes of the scholarly communication ecosystem.”
