Publications: How to Comply with the NIH Public Access Policy

  • The NIH Public Access Policy requires scientists to submit all final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central (PMC) to ensure that the public has access to the published results of NIH funding research.
  • If a journal publisher does not submit to PMC on behalf of authors, the responsibly for submission to PMC falls on authors.
