There are four steps involved with brining publications into compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. Details can be found in the library's NIH Public Access Policy Research Guide.

  1. Determine Applicability
    Does the NIH Public Access Policy apply to your paper?

  2. Address Copyright Ensure that your publishing agreement allows the paper to be posted to PubMed Central in accordance with the NIH Public Access Policy.
  3. Submit Paper Submit papers to PubMed Central and approve public release.
  4. Include PMCID in Citations Include the PMCID at the end of the full citation in your application or report. You do not need to find PMCIDs for all articles in an NIH grant application, proposal or progress report. You only need to include the PMCID when citing applicable papers that you author or that arise from your NIH-funded research.
