NIH Public Access Policy Information

The NIH Public Access Policy  requires that “all investigators funded by the NIH submit to the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed Central (PMC) an electronic version of their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts upon acceptance for publication, to be made publicly available no later than 12 months after the official date of publication.” 

The UT Health Science Center Library has compiled a website on the NIH Public Access Policy with information on applicability of manuscripts and cited articles, steps to compliance, the manuscript submission process, a video tutorial, and NIH quick links.
