ARL and Other Higher Ed. Organizations Propose SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE)

From an ARL Announcement:

The Association of American Universities (AAU), Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), and ARL have drafted a proposal, SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) (PDF), in response to the recent White House directive on public access to federally funded research and data.

From the Proposal:

Research universities are long-lived and are mission-driven to generate, make accessible, and preserve over time new knowledge and understanding. Research universities collectively have the assets needed for a national solution for enhanced public access to federally funded research output. As the principal producers of the resources that are to be made publicly available under the new White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)[1] memorandum, and that are critical to the continuing success of higher education in the United States, universities have invested in the infrastructure, tools, and services necessary to provide effective and efficient access to their research and scholarship. The new White House directive provides a compelling reason to integrate higher education’s investments to date into a system of cross-institutional digital repositories that will be known as SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE).
