Natural Hazards, NOAA report provides direction for open data mandate

Researchers who receive federal funds are now asked to make their research publicly available as soon as possible, according to a mandate from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). The Natural Hazards Center at the Institute of Behavioral Science (IBS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Program Office convened a workshop to address concerns about this new requirement. Jolie Breeden, lead editor and science writer for the Natural Hazards Center, writes about a new report resulting from the workshop.
