The National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts funded by NIH to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication. The Public Access Policy webpage http://publicaccess.nih.gov/provides step-by-step instructions for complying with the policy. Instructions for preparing a manuscript, what to do after it has been accepted for publication and reporting to NIH are included. Links to a training video as well as to specific instructions for authors’ own publications are also included. Norris librarians have also created a NIH Public Access Policy subject guide and informative videos to guide you through the process.
