NASA has thrown open its research library to the general public. Dubbed as PubSpace, the materials included on the library are available free of cost.
According to NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan, the launch of PubSpace will mainly benefit scientists and engineers and accelerate innovation. She revealed that making our research data easier to access will greatly magnify the impact of our research. As scientists and engineers, we work by building upon a foundation laid by others, Stofan added.
From now onwards, any NASA-funded research articles in peer-reviewed journals must comply to its new policy. This requires that papers will have to be published and uploaded to the new portal.
However, his should be done within one year of publication to enable researchers to access them at any time. The only exception is studies that involve patents and material governed by personal privacy, proprietary, or security laws.
Responding to media, NASA Deputy Administrator Dava Newman said that NSAS celebrates this opportunity to extend access to our extensive portfolio of scientific and technical publications.He said that through open access and innovation they invite the global community to join us in exploring Earth, air, and space.
