The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation recently announced a new Open Access Policy that will help to maximize the impact of the research we fund. The policy requires that grantees ensure their peer-reviewed journal articles are openly available within 12 months of publication, either on the journal’s site or in an open access repository.

The foundation is committed to increasing open access, and ultimately ensuring that published research be freely accessible. Free and open access to the outputs of research offers significant social and economic benefits and aids the development of new research.

The full policy is available on, as well as frequently asked questions.

For additional questions, contact Ian Sweedler.


Help us spread the word.

If you know someone who is interested in this field or what we are doing at the foundation, pass it along.
