On December 9, 2009, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) within the Executive Office of the President, published a notice requesting input from the community regarding enhancing public access to archived publications resulting from research funded by Federal science and technology agencies. That notice stated that the RFI would be active from December 10, 2009 to January 7, 2010. The purpose of this document is to extend that comment period to allow comments until January 21, to accommodate potential respondents who may find it difficult to complete their responses by the original deadline because of the intervening holidays. Respondents are invited to respond online via the Public Access Policy Forum at, or may submit responses via electronic mail. Responses will be re-posted on the online forum. Instructions and a timetable for daily blog topics during this period are described at
