SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VA’s policy and implementation plan for increased public access to the results of its research was developed in response to White House initiatives on federally funded scientific research. In its SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00141 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60751 February 22, 2013, memorandum, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) directed each federal agency with over $100 million in annual expenditures for the conduct of research and development to develop a plan to support increased public access to the results of research funded by the federal government, including digital data sets and results published in peerreviewed scholarly publications arising directly from federally-funded research (OSTP, Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research, February 22, 2013). In implementing policies on public access to research publications and digital research data, VA must first remain cognizant of its ethical and legal obligations to safeguard the privacy of Veterans (and VA’s other research subjects) and the confidentiality of their private information, while promoting the highest quality science. VA also recognizes that Veterans and the public at large have a substantive interest in accessing the results of the research that VA conducts. VA’s responsibility precludes unlimited public access to private information about individual research subjects. With this in mind, VA has carefully weighed the public benefits versus the risks of harm to Veterans and other research subjects in establishing the requirements. VA is committed to ensuring that the final study results, including peerreviewed publications and digital data from VA-funded scientific research, are made available to the scientific community, industry, and the general public with the fewest constraints possible, while protecting the privacy of the Veterans (and others individuals) about whom research data are obtained and safeguarding the confidentiality of their data. Requirements for public access to scientific publications will apply to all peer-reviewed publications reporting results of research that are either funded by the VA Office of Research and Development (ORD) or conducted, supported, or sponsored by any Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Program Office. Requirements for public access to digital data will apply to the final research data underlying all peerreviewed publications reporting results of research that is either funded by the VA ORD or conducted, supported, or sponsored by any VHA Program Office. VA proposes to begin sharing digital research data through controlled public access mechanisms and move toward open public access to the extent that the protection of Veterans’ identifiable private information can be ensured.
