"A new policy from the White House will extend that rapid-response thinking beyond COVID to the rest of the scientific world.

In August 2022, a directive from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy declared an end to the journal paywall. This memo establishes a timeline for ALL research funded by the US federal government to be made freely accessible to the public the moment it is published.

It does this not to punish legacy journals, but to improve the speed and dissemination of scientific research, to encourage equity of access, and to increase public trust in the scientific process.

This week, we talk with Heather Joseph, Executive Director of the open access advocacy organization SPARC. She tells us how this policy evolved, and what it means for the future of scientific publishing."
