Coming Soon: Automated NIH PAP Compliance Emails
Posted On: Sunday, October 23, 2022 - 16:34 by Beth

The NIH Public Access Policy mandates that all publications produced with NIH funds must have a PMCID within 90 days of acceptance and must be made available in PubMed Central within 1 year of publishing. This policy ensures that the public has timely access to the published results of NIH funded research, but is an extra step that researchers must perform upon the acceptance of the manuscripts.
