"On December 8, NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD) released an important update to its comprehensive Scientific Information Policy (SPD-41a), which represents a significant percentage of NASA’s research expenditures. While this policy does not serve as NASA's official response to the OSTP Nelson Memorandum, it is a good indication of what we are likely to ultimately see in NASA's agency-wide public access plan, which is due out in February 2023....

Requires that the proceedings of SMD-sponsored meetings and workshops be held openly to enable broad participation...."
