A Global Open Data for Agriculture (GODAN) partner report "Open Access and Open Data at PUSH Universities", was published by Presidents United to Solve Hunger (PUSH), a GODAN partner led by Auburn University in the USA. GODAN, and Officials at Auburn, support university policies that permit access to university research in areas such as agriculture and nutrition. The report has highlighted the need for open access and open data that could be used to enhance research across the globe and help respond to global challenges such as hunger and malnutrition.
The report is a result of an Auburn investigation of 99 PUSH member universities that found only 15 have open access policies, and that none have specific open data policies.
