NIH Researchers - New Look for NIHMS!

The old NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) System got a facelift in January 2015. NIHMS is used to deposit and approve research manuscripts  funded by NIH and accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008.

In addition to a new, fresh Web page design, NIH is streamlining the manuscript submission process, as well as the login procedures. The homepage now has a graphic overview of the process. Just hover over the steps for more information or links to more details.

When you enter the system, you will find a list of your manuscripts with the status for each. A PI or author must still provide the initial and final approvals steps, but there are updated instructions for each part of the process.

Major changes to the process:
  • NIHMS ID will be assigned only AFTER files are uploaded
  • Deposit process has been streamlined with clear explanations
  • PDF receipt MUST BE opened before going to the next step reports!
  • Funding must be added by the reviewer BEFORE the initial approval

You can still access the NIHMS System through "My Bibliography" when you add a new citation and want to start the submission or compliance work.
