JST establishes JST Policy on Open Access to Research Publications and Research Data Management(JST Open Science Policy) in consideration of recent trends of Open Science both inside and outside Japan. This policy defines JSTís basic stance on Open Access to research publications and management of research data resulting from research projects funded by JST. Researchers who participate in those projects are required to handle research results appropriately complying with this policy. JST Open Access Policy released in April 2013 was abolished by the enactment of JST Open Science Policy.
