NIH Steps Up Enforcement of the NIH Public Access Policy

NIHOn February 14, 2013 NIH announced that it will delay processing non-competing continuation grant awards with a start date of July 1, 2013 or later, if the publications arising from the grant are not in compliance with the NIH Public Access policy. Investigators also must use the My Bibliography function of My NCBI to enter publications onto progress reports. Publications can be associated electronically using the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) or included using the My NCBI generated PDF report. (NOT-OD-13-042)

Do you need help ensuring that your publications are compliant with the NIH Public Access policy? Miner librarians can help you identify any non-compliant publications arising from your NIH grants using the new Public Access Compliance Monitor. We can also submit publications to PubMed Central (PMC) on your behalf and show you how to manage your publications using My Bibliography. Contact Michele Shipley ( or 275-6878) for more information.
