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.
