NIH PUBLIC ACCESS POLICY
In an effort to make published research funded by NIH accessible to the public, the NIH Public Access Policy was signed into law and is now a term and condition for all active grants and contracts awarded as of April 7, 2008. According to NIH, "failure to comply may trigger one or more enforcement actions, depending on the severity and duration of the non-compliance." This new policy is applicable to final published articles written from research funded either in part or in whole by NIH. The policy has several components that NIH-funded TTUHSC faculty must address.
Copyright: Authors must ensure that agreements with publishers permit submission to NIH. When submitting a manuscript to a journal, please include this letter from TTUHSC alerting the publisher that the article is subject to the NIH policy. The letter contains language that needs to be inserted into all publication agreements unless the agreement already contains similar language.
Submission to PubMed Central: Authors (or the journal on behalf of the author) must submit the final version to NIH, through the on-line PubMed Central (PMC) repository.
Cite manuscript ID# in progress reports, applications, and renewals: Upon submission to PMC, the manuscript will be assigned an ID number to be used when referencing the article in your NIH Progress Reports, new applications, and renewals. Beginning in late May, the assigned program officer will expect to see the assigned PMC ID# on all progress reports and applications.
For more information, see the NIH website with FAQs on the Public Access Policy.
