NIH Public Access Policy

NIH Public Access Policy

Effective Monday April 7, 2008, all NIH-funded researchers are obligated to comply with a new law requiring them to submit copies of peer-reviewed manuscripts accepted for publication and resulting from any NIH funding, to the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed Central. In addition, beginning May 25, 2008 all researchers submitting applications, proposals or progress reports to the NIH will be required to provide a list of PubMed Central ID (PMC ID) numbers for any NIH funded publications referenced in the applications, proposals or progress reports. The NIH has advised that, “Non-compliance will be addressed administratively, and may delay or prevent awarding of funds.”
