To require NIH-funded investigators and extramural staff to submit final peer-reviewed manuscripts to a public archive of research publications and to show evidence of compliance with the public access policy in applications, proposals, and progress reports.
NIH's public access policy has two requirements:
Public access covers publications that report research funded in whole or in part by NIH. This includes grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, fellowships, and intramural research.
The policy applies only to peer-reviewed papers published in journals, not to book chapters, editorials, reviews, or conference proceedings.
Compliance is a legal requirement and a term and condition of award.
Grantees with questions should Contact Staff for Help in the Strategy for NIH Funding.
