On March 18, the U.S. National Science Foundation announced the steps it
will take to make federally-funded research publicly available. I had some
questions regarding what this might mean for publishing companies and
peer-reviewed journals.

*I reached out to some of the largest publishers of scholarly journals, and
representatives from three of the publishers responded. *The answers ranged
from certainty that NSF’s plan would be easily implemented to uncertainty
about what the plan would mean. I’m including all three responses below. *My
questions were the same for all of the publishers I contacted, and are
included in the first set of responses below.*
