NIH Public Access Policy

The NIH Public Access Policy requires researchers to share any peer-reviewed journal articles resulting from NIH funding in PubMed Central (PMC). 

BUL Librarians can help researchers and administrators navigate the systems and processes in place for complying with the NIH Public Access Policy. This can include:

  • Ensuring your article has copyright permissions to share a final peer-reviewed manuscript or article in PubMed Central (PMC),
  • Help with uploading your manuscript in the NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS), and identifying whether a publisher will do this for you,
  • Delegation or assistance with adding your publications to MyBibliography,
  • Troubleshooting non-compliant publications.
