Interagency Working Group on Open Science

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Interagency Working Group on Open Science (IWGOS) was established in October 2016 to advance Federal efforts to support open science by increasing access to and use of the results of Federally funded research and development, including but not limited to scholarly publications and digital data. Among its responsibilities, the IWGOS aims to improve implementation of policies to increase access to the results of Federally funded scientific research as described in a February 2013 memorandum from the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and to identify additional steps that Federal departments and agencies can take to enhance the preservation, discoverability, accessibility, quality, and utility of the outputs of Federally funded scientific research.
