NIH Public Access Policy Now In Effect

Effective April 7th, 2008 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) made the dissemination of NIH-funded research results mandatory (NIH Public Access Policy, PL 110-161). Any peer-reviewed article or manuscript accepted for publication that results in whole or in part from research funded by an NIH grant or cooperative agreement active in FY ’08 (October 1, 2007-September 30, 2008) or funded by a contract signed on or after April 7, 2008 must be submitted to PubMedCentral within twelve months of the publication date. Details are available on the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) website.
