The first step of complying with the NIH Public Access Policy is determining what papers are covered by it.
The Policy applies to any peer-reviewed manuscript that is accepted for journal publication on or after April 7, 2008 that arises from:
- Any direct funding from an NIH grant or cooperative agreement active in Fiscal Year 2008 or beyond, or;
- Any direct funding from an NIH contract signed on or after April 7, 2008, or;
- Any direct funding from the NIH Intramural Program, or;
- An NIH employee.
For questions and/or help with determining applicability, contact Kelli Hines or the reference department at the Harriet K & Philip Pumerantz Library.
