The America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010, signed by President Obama earlier this year, calls upon OSTP to coordinate with agencies to develop policies that assure widespread public access to and long-term stewardship of the results of federally funded unclassified research. Towards that goal, OSTP issued the two RFIs soliciting public input on long-term preservation of and public access to the results of federally funded research, including digital data and peer-reviewed scholarly publications.
We encourage stakeholders to carefully consider the questions in the RFIs and provide comments to the addresses specified. Soon after the conclusion of the comment periods, OSTP will make all comments available on its website (including the names of the authors and their institutional affiliations, so please do not include any proprietary or confidential information when

Medieval manuscripts frequently contain no indication of when they were written. In order to assign them an approximate dating, we invariably have to make judgments based on their script and decoration, both of which change over the centuries.
This book brings together a group of international experts to consider the following key issues:
