About NIH Public Access Policy
NIH Manuscript Submission System
NIH Policy
The NIH Public Access Policy ensures that the public has access to the published results of
NIH funded research. Researchers are required to submit journal articles that arise from NIH
funds to the digital archive PubMed Central. The policy requires that these articles be publicly
accessible in order to advance science and improve human health.
The Law
The NIH Public Access Policy implements Division G, Title II, Section 218 of PL 110-161
(Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008) which states:
SEC. 218. The Director of the National Institutes of Health shall require that all investigators
funded by the NIH submit or have submitted for them to the National Library of Medicine's
PubMed Central 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...
Important Dates
As of April 7, 2008 all peer-reviewed articles resulting from NIH-funded research must be
submitted to PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication.
As of May 25, 2008 publications cited in proposals, applications and progress reports must
include the PubMed Central reference number (PMCID) for articles that fall under the Policy
and are authored or co-authored by the investigator, or arose from the investigator's award.
This policy includes applications submitted for the May 25, 2008, due date and subsequent
due dates. If the PMCID is not yet available, the NIH Manuscript Submission system reference
number (NIHMS ID) should be submitted.
December 21, 2012 -NIH informs grantees that in Spring, 2013, at the earliest, NIH will delay
processing of non-competing continuation grant awards if publications arising from that award
are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy. The award will not be processed until
recipients have demonstrated compliance.
Who is affected?
The Policy applies to you if your peer-reviewed article accepted for publication on or after April
7, 2008 is based on work in one or more of the following categories:
Directly funded by NIH grant, cooperative agreement, or contract active in Fiscal Year
2008 or beyond
Directly funded by a contract signed on or after April 7, 2008
Directly funded by the NIH
