Outline About the Policy Requirements Methods of Submission Journal policies Copyright & Embargo Periods Understanding the terminology How to Comply Primary Systems to Use My Bibliography (via My NCBI) The NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS )
The NIH Public Access Policy Full text articles resulting from NIH funding must be submitted to PubMed Central. Peer reviewed manuscripts must be submitted to PubMed Central when accepted for publication. accessible to the public by 12 months after publication. Includes articles accepted for publication after April 7, 2008. r esulting from grants active after October 2007. Starting spring 2013, the NIH will hold processing of non competing continuation awards if publications arising from grant awards are not in compliance with the Public Access Policy. Publishing in an open access journal or institutional repository does not meet the Policy requirements.
Who Must Comply Criteria for Submission Peer reviewed Accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008 Arises from direct NIH funding: NIH grant or cooperative agreement active in FY2008 or beyond NIH contract signed on or after April 7, 2008 NIH Intramural Program NIH employee Written using the Latin alphabet (that used for English not Chinese, Russian, Arabic, etc.) The grant Principal Investigator (PI) is ultimately held responsible but the author must complete the submission process.
Submission Methods A. The journal will deposit all final published articles in PubMed Central http :// publicaccess.nih.gov/submit_process_journals.htm B. The journal will deposit your final published article, but you must request that they do so (may require a fee). http :// publicaccess.nih.gov/select_deposit_publishers.htm C. You deposit the final peer reviewed manuscript yourself via NIH Manuscript Submission System ( NIHMS, http ://www.nihms.nih.gov / ) with journal permission.

Copyright Issues Check all publication or copyright transfer agreements before signing to ensure submission to PubMed Central is allowed. Journals vary widely in how they handle this policy. The NIH provides an example of the kind of language that can be added to a copyright agreement at http:// publicaccess.nih.gov/FAQ.htm#778 More Author Rights Resources: T he SPARC Addendum: http:// www.arl.org/sparc/author/addendum.shtml ScienceCommons http :// www.sciencecommons.org/resources/faq/authorsaddendum LibGuide : http :// guides.uflib.ufl.edu/content.php?pid=32772&sid=2475398
The NIH allows up to 1 year post publication for appearance of the full text article in PubMed Central (PMC). Many journals require that authors wait for some or all of that 12 month period before allowing the article to be made available in PMC. Some journals pre arrange that with PMC (i.e. Methods A & B journals), others require the author to enter the embargo period when the author does the submission process (Methods C&D journals). Always verify this requirement with the journal. Do NOT wait until the end of the 1 year post publication period to submit, as there is processing time required. Submit upon acceptance for publication and inform the NIH of any required embargo period during the submission process.
PubMed vs. PubMed Central PubMed and PubMed Central are two different databases. PubMed Is a database of article citations & abstracts. Having your article listed in PubMed Is not required for compliance. Does not guarantee submission to PMC. PubMed Central (PMC) Is a database of full text articles/manuscripts. Will include articles not in PubMed. Abstracts in PubMed that have corresponding full text in PMC will be inter linked. Your article must be placed in PMC (not PubMed) for compliance.
Clarifying the ID Numbers PMID = permanent PubMed abstract identifier PMCID = permanent PubMed Central full text article identifier NIHMSID = temporary manuscript submission identifier given to an author who self submits a manuscript to the NIHMS system The PMCID is required for compliance. Temporary NIHMSIDs will be replaced by permanent PMCIDs. NIHMSIDs are good for 3 months. Not all articles with PMCIDs will have PMIDs. PMIDs do not substitute for PMCIDs. You can use one identifier to find another on this website
How to Comply New Article Journal method (A, B, C, D) Embargo period Use My Bibliography (My NCBI) to keep track of all your articles. Older Articles Enter article citations into My Bibliography (My NCBI). Link awards to articles. Look at citation status. For noncompliant articles: Look up journal, find its method (A, B, C, D). Contact journal to either have the journal submit or get permission to submit. When needed, submit article through NIHMS system.
Primary Systems to Use My NCBI My Bibliography Keep track of all your publications. View and manage both grant links and compliance status simultaneously. NIHMS NIH Manuscript Submission System Use for author submission of articles. Use for author sign off on journal submitted articles. Track status of articles during submission process. For both, use your eRA Commons/NIH login

Sign in to My NCBI NOT the default!! From any NCBI page (such as PubMed.gov): ONLY use the NIH Login. Use your eRA Commons Login. The first time you login, you will see this. Then click continue.
View My NCBI Page including My Bibliography. Use the Manage My Bibliography link to view and manipulate citations, compliance status and grant links.
Adding Articles to My Bibliography If articles are in PubMed Be already logged in to My NCBI Search PubMed for article Select article(s) desired Go to My NCBI > My Bibliography > check to see if article listed If articles are not in PubMed From drop Check to see if article is listed properly in My Bibliography

Using the NIHMS Manuscripts may be entered by A ny author A ny person delegated by the author The author who initiated submission must perform the final approval before the manuscript is made publicly available in PubMed Central. It is the PI who will be held responsible by NIH for lack of compliance on any specific grant award. PIs should track compliance by authors relying on their grant funding. Slideshow demonstrations of each step of the submission process and links to FAQs are available at http://nihms.nih.gov/help/#slideshow
NIHMS Login Go to http:// www.nihms.nih.gov Click on either Always use your eRACommons /NIH login!
Submit new manuscript. Check on status of already submitted articles or articles in process. Search for article by NIHMSID. NIHMS User Page
NIHMS: Enter Basic Information After logging in, begin submission by Selecting the journal name Entering the manuscript title Selecting all appropriate (NIH and/or HHMI) funding mechanisms that supported the manuscript. Note that grants can be linked to articles later, but at least one NIH/HHMI funding source needs to be provided at this stage
NIHMS: Upload M anuscript Upload the manuscript file(s). Include full text, figures and all edits & modifications from peer review Layout/formatting made by the journal for the final published version is not required The final peer reviewed manuscript should be submitted, unless the journal publisher has given permission to submit the final published article.
