Year of Open Science

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) announced 2023 as the Year of Open Science.

The principle and practice of making research products and processes available to all, while respecting diverse cultures, maintaining security and privacy, and fostering collaborations, reproducibility, and equity. - OSTP and the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC)

At a federal level, this includes activities like new grant funding, improvements in research infrastructure, and building on OSTP's 2022 memorandum, Ensuring Free, Immediate, and Equitable Access to Federally Funded Research. At the library, this means continuing to support UMD researchers in making their research publications and data openly available.

The Kathryn A. Martin Library is celebrating the Year of Open Science by inviting researchers to attend a series of online workshops on making their research publications and data openly available. These workshops are free and open to faculty, staff, and students from all campuses.
