Support is available for Cornell researchers in meeting these requirements, both for publications (this site) and for research data (via RDMSG). More information

Public Access or Open Access?
Public Access policies (usually issued by research funders) ensure that the results of research are freely available to the public. Open Access publishing also results in making the results of research freely available to the public, but publishing in an open access journal or data repository may not be necessary or sufficient for compliance with public access policies. The public access publications team is available to help all researchers with these issues – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
