Research Funder Public Access Policies: Home

Research or funding agencies are increasingly implementing open access mandates that require researchers to make their peer-reviewed, published research available to the public. The terms and compliance of each mandate are set by the initiating agency.

FSU Policies

FSU has defined roles and responsibilities for compliance in the Research Data Management and Public Access to Research Publications policies.

FSU Campus Resources

DigniNole

DigiNole Commons - Florida State University's open access repository. In some cases, this repository may be suitable to meet public access mandate compliance.

Campus Units:

Office of Research Compliance Programs

ORSP is responsible for the development, oversight, and monitoring of the research compliance program for Florida State University, specifically: conflict of interest, responsible conduct of research, and (in the near future) export controls.

Research Computing Center

The Research Computing Center at Florida State University enables research and education by maintaining a diverse campus cyberinfrastructure and by providing training opportunities and dedicated consulting. We operate as a unit of Information Technology Services to support cutting-edge, university-wide research. Our goal is to lower barriers to computing and data storage resources so that our faculty and students can focus on research and education. 

Office of Proposal Development

The Office of Proposal Development (OPD), a component of the Office of the Vice President for Research at Florida State University, serves as a resource for faculty seeking grant support. The office provides a variety of services including proposal development assistance, faculty partnership identification, as well as training opportunities for faculty who are new to grant seeking and grant writing. OPD also publishes funding notices and provides other research-related resources.

Office of Digital Research and Scholarship

The Office of Digital Research and Scholarship in University Libraries supports the production, dissemination, promotion and preservation of scholarly research and creative works in a digital research environment. The Academic Publishing team works with faculty, graduate students and undergraduates on questions related to sharing their scholarly work online, managing copyright to those works and the ongoing shifts in the system of academic publishing.
