The Public Access Compliance Monitor (PACM) Tool
The Public Access Compliance Monitor (PACM) Tool is a database of works that NIH believes a particular grantee institution is responsible for under the terms of the NIH Public Access Policy. PACM may or may not contain all applicable works and some works may be exempt from the NIH Policy. PACM is not used as a reporting or monitoring tool for NIH.
Each department, division or program on campus has a designated PACR who is able to run reports on PACM. Please contact Laura Langton: firstname.lastname@example.org to find out who the designated PACR is for your group or to be assigned as a PACR for your group. Each work as noted in PACM should be reviewed to determine whether compliance is required.
To help understand a PACM Report, a new guidance document is available: Understanding a Public Access Compliance (PACM) Report. The document provides a screenshot of a PACM Report and explains what each column means to help determine what steps need to be taken to bring a work into compliance if necessary.
If you would like to schedule a session on the NIH Policy for your group, please contact Cathy Sarli: email@example.com to arrange for a session. We provide informal, hands-on sessions to review My Bibliography pages, troubleshoot works with missing PMCIDs, and answer any questions. Journal lists containing information as to Submission Methods are also provided. Sessions can be held at your office location for convenience.
