Complying with NIH Public Access Policy
NIH requires that articles supported by its grants be included in PubMed Central, the NIH digital archive of full-text, peer-reviewed journal articles. Its content is publicly accessible, free, and integrated with other databases.
Some journals automatically submit articles to PubMed Central on behalf of the authors. However, authors should always verify that their published articles are submitted to PubMed Central in compliance with the NIH public access policy.
