The U.S. Department of Transportation has essential requirements for researchers and research institutions requesting and receiving transportation-related federal research funds. The U.S. DOT strives to make it easier to publish and communicate scientific knowledge. It is a long-range vision which goes beyond the requirements of the U.S. DOT’s Public Access Plan.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 936: Guide to Ensuring Access to the Publications and Data of Federally Funded Transportation Research is designed to help state DOTs, as well as other organizations that do transportation research, better understand and consider how they will comply with the U.S. DOT policy.
The guide is accompanied by NCHRP Web-Only Document 270: Developing a Guide to Ensuring Access to the Publications and Data of Federally Funded Transportation Research.
