About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Upcoming Session on the NIH Public Access Policy

The NIH Public Access Policy requires investigators and scholars to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance of publication. All journal manuscripts applicable under the NIH Public Access Policy must have a PMCID in proposals, applications and renewal reports. As of Spring 2013, NIH has delayed processing of non-competing continuation grant awards for publications that do not have a PMCID.

Are you familiar with journal policies for NIH-funded authors? Do you need a NIHMSID or a PMCID for an application, proposal or progress report? Do you know how to respond to a request from NIH asking for documentation of compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy? 

This brown-bag presentation will provide an overview of the NIH Public Access Policy including the steps involved in complying with the policy and how to demonstrate compliance.
