How to Confirm Journal Policies for NIH-Funded Authors Based on Submission Methods

Compliance steps for the NIH Public Access Policy are based on the Submission Method followed by journals. What are the steps required for compliance under each Submission Method? How do you find and confirm journal policies for NIH-funded authors? What do you do if you are unable to locate the journal policy for NIH-funded authors? See the new guidance document that includes tips/screenshots on the following:

  • Applicability
  • Submission Methods: A, B, C, and D
  • Compliance Process
  • Confirming Journal Policies for NIH-funded Authors

NIH-funded authors are highly encouraged to confirm journal policies before submitting a manuscript for peer review to ensure timely compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. A PMCID is required within three months of post-publication.

For non-competing continuation grant awards with a start date of 01 July 2013, NIH will delay processing of an award if publications arising from it are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy. See: Changes to Public Access Policy Compliance Efforts Apply to All Awards with Anticipated Start Dates on or after July 1, 2013 (NOT-OD-13-042).
