General Information

The NIH Public Access Policy requires all NIH funded researchers to submit or have submitted for them an electronic copy of their final peer-reviewed manuscript to PubMed Central. The manuscript will be made publicly available no later than 12 months after the official date of publication. PubMed Central (PMC) is a digital repository maintained by the National Library of Medicine.

The NIH has released comprehensive guidance on these new rules including answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Many journals submit articles to PubMed Central on behalf of authors. If you publish your article in one of these journals, you do not need to do anything to comply with the submission requirement. A complete list of these journals is available at
