White House Office of Science & Tech Policy Seeks Feedback

Posted by mattusmaximus on May 7, 2009

The fine folks over at Science Debate have alerted me that the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy is soliciting feedback in the form of a public comment period on its website.

The OSTP is looking for recommendations on the six issues President Obama identified in his memo:

  1. hiring and keeping qualified scientists
  2. defining new policies to ensure integrity
  3. using “well-established scientific processes” like peer review
  4. disclosing scientific findings
  5. ensuring that principles of scientific integrity are being adhered to
  6. adopting additional policies like whistleblower protections

The OSTP is accepting comments via email and through their blog, here.

Their original request for input can be found here (pdf).

Please take a few minutes to visit the OSTP website and leave feedback.  This is the perfect opportunity for the scientific & skeptical community to make its voice heard and have a positive impact!
