How to Comply with the NIH Public Access Policy
Articles arising from NIH funds accepted for publication after April 7, 2008 must be submitted to PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance. They must be made publicly available no more than 12 months after appearing in a peer-reviewed journal.
NIH grantees need to demonstrate compliance with the Public Access Policy when submitting an application, proposal, or progress report to the NIH. Grantees should include the PubMed Central (PMC) reference number for each paper that was accepted for publication after April 7, 2008 and was authored or co-authored by the applicant or arose from their NIH award.
