In 2008, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that investigators funded by the NIH must submit a copy of their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts to PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance of publication, to be made publicly available no later than 12 months after the date of publication. Failure to comply with the Public Access Policy will result in funding delays.
If you are involved with NIH-funded research in any capacity, consider attending this workshop to learn more about the Public Access Policy and how to be compliant with it. It will cover:
* what it is and what it means;
* who has to comply;
* how to determine the copyright policy of the journal publishing your manuscript, and;
* the various methods of article submission into PMC, including the NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS).
Due to space restrictions, this workshop will be limited to 30 attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.
