Research universities are long-lived and mission-driven institutions that generate, make accessible, and preserve over time new knowledge and understanding. ARL, the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) have drafted a proposal, “SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE)”, as a long-term solution for higher education to manage its digital assets. The proposal also serves as a response to the recent White House directive on public access to federally funded research and data. The three associations envision SHARE as a network of digital repositories at universities, libraries, and other research institutions across the US that will provide long-term public access to federally funded research articles and data.
