The public access is increased this way and the goal is the dissemination of fundamental research results to advance scientific knowledge. The NASA-Funded Research Results portal is in response to a 2013 request from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. “Making our research data easier to access will greatly magnify the impact of our research,” said NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan. At NASA PubSpace (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/funder/nasa/) anyone can search through a library of research papers already numbering in the hundreds. There will be some exceptions for articles that concern national security and patents. However, with some few exceptions, every future academic paper on research funded by NASA will be available to the public for free. “At NASA, we are celebrating this opportunity to extend access to our extensive portfolio of scientific and technical publications,” said NASA Deputy Administrator Dava Newman.
