NIH public access policy effective July 1
Starting July 1, all principal investigators who receive funds from the National Institutes of Health will be required to demonstrate compliance with NIH’s Public Access Policy before the agency will process non-competing continuation grant awards.
The policy requires PIs to submit all peer-reviewed and published manuscripts resulting from NIH-funded research to PubMed Central within 12 months of publication. Although some publishers will submit manuscripts for authors, the NIH-funded author is responsible for compliance. PubMed Central is a free archive of biomedical and life sciences journal articles at NIH’s National Library for Medicine.
PubMed Central reference numbers (PMCID) should be included in citations for publications covered by the policy in all NIH applications, proposals and progress reports.
This requirement applies to all grant awards and cooperative agreements funded by NIH. More information about the policy is also available in NIH Public Access Policy Quick Facts in the Research Policies and Procedures list on the Office of Sponsored Programs website.
