NIST-Funded Extramural Research
Non-NIST recipients of NIST funds ("awardees") for the conduct of scientific research must meet the public access requirements for scientific research data and publications described in the Special Award Conditions of their funding agreements. NIST Federal Program Officers (FPOs) associated with the funding agreements must meet requirements described in NIST directives above. Instructions provided below explain the process for FPOs and awardees to follow when depositing data in NIST's repository in PMC. (Additional information for NIST FPOs is available on the NIST intranet at https://inet.nist.gov/adlp/open-access-research/nist-funded-external-research.)
