Statement: STM’s response to the OSTP memorandum on Ensuring Free, Immediate, and Equitable Access to Federally Funded Research

STM is committed to advancing trusted research in partnership with all stakeholders in the research ecosystem. We have been partners with the US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and federal agencies on implementation of current US public access policy, and have invested heavily in collective initiatives to support open research practices, including research data sharing. As we meet the future, we look forward to continuing to work with the OSTP and federal agencies to ensure the health and vibrancy of a research system that supports and enables the innovations and cures we all seek. Collaboration, dialogue, diversity and funding will be necessary to achieve these goals.
