Updates to the PublicAccess.nih.gov Web Site And
New NLM Public Access Resources Web Page
N IH Awardees have been notified that the NIH Public Access Policy is permanent, per the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009 in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The NIH Pubic Access Policy Web site was updated to reflect this. Additional updates to the Web site based on this information include:
- The Public Access FAQ B1, "To what papers does the NIH Public Access Policy apply?" has been updated.
- The training slides at http://publicaccess.nih.gov/communications.htm have been updated accordingly. These slides are intended to be downloaded and modified to support institutional efforts to train authors and comply with the Policy.
- Anyone submitting an application, proposal or progress report to the NIH must include the PubMed Central® or NIH Manuscript Submission reference number when citing applicable articles that arise from their NIH-funded research. Instructions on citing papers have been consolidated into a Web page, at http://publicaccess.nih.gov/citation_methods.htm. This link is accessible via the sidebar of http://publicaccess.nih.gov/index.htm under "Citation Methods."
In addition, NLM has created a new Web page, NIH Public Access and NIH Manuscript Submission Useful Resources & Tools, providing links to information and training resources that support the NIH Public Access policy. A link to this page is provided on the NLM® Web site pages For Librarians and For Researchers. The link is located in the right-hand sidebar under the "Publications" category with the text link of "NIH Public Access Policy Resources."
