NIH Public Access

To advance science and improve human health, NIH makes the peer-reviewed articles it funds publicly available on PubMed Central. The NIH public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication. [more]

My NCBI & My Bibliography are tools faculty must use to ensure compliance for their publications arising from NIH funding – reported via their progress reports (RPPRs) in eRA Commons.

SciENcv is an electronic system that helps researchers assemble the professional profile (NIH & NSF Biosketches) needed for application of federal funds.

For more information about this policy, or the tools used to ensure compliance, please contact Aaron House @ to schedule a training session for you, or your department staff or faculty.
