NASA-funded research data can now be accessed via their recently unveiled public web portal, PubSpace. All authors of peer-reviewed papers resulting from research funded by NASA, starting in 2016, will be required to deposit copies of publications and associated data within one year of publication.
This archive of original science results will be available online without a fee. “Making our research data easier to access will greatly magnify the impact of our research,” said NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan. “As scientists and engineers, we work by building upon a foundation laid by others.”
