websiteNASA has unveiled a new web portal that offers public access to scientific information from various agency-funded studies.

The space agency said Tuesday it aims to expand the dissemination of fundamental space research data through the Funded Research Results portal on the NASA.gov website.

“Through open access and innovation we invite the global community to join us in exploring Earth, air and space,” noted Dava Newman, NASA deputy administrator.

“Making our research data easier to access will greatly magnify the impact of our research,” said Ellen Stofan, NASA chief scientist.

NASA created the portal to comply with the Office of Science and Technology Policy‘s directive requiring science-funding agencies to increase access to the findings of federally-funded studies.

The agency requires agency-funded researchers to make their original science journal articles publicly accessible via a publication repository called PubSpace.
