OA research in the news: Moniz nominated Secretary of Energy

Posted March 7th, 2013 by Katharine Dunn

This week, President Barack Obama nominated physics professor Ernest Moniz to head the U.S. Department of Energy. Moniz previously served the White House as associate director for science in the Office of Science and Technology Policy and as undersecretary of energy, both under President Bill Clinton. Moniz is founding director of the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI). MITEI, which links science, innovation, and policy, has supported about 800 research projects on campus and engaged 25 percent of MIT faculty.

Explore Professor Moniz’s research in the Open Access Articles collection in DSpace@MIT, where it is openly accessible to the world.

Since the MIT faculty established their Open Access Policy in March 2009 they have made thousands of research papers freely available to the world via DSpace@MIT. To highlight that research, we’re offering a series of blog posts that link news stories about scholars’ work to their open access papers in DSpace.
