National Institutes of Health Public Access Policy

The NIH Public Access Policy ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH funded research. It requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication. To help advance science and improve human health, the Policy requires that these papers are accessible to the public on PubMed Central no later than 12 months after publication.

MyNCBI users can save their citations in My Bibliography and manage peer review article compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. Check out our LibGuide on NIH Public Access Policy for more information.


Making Data Available

Most government funding agencies require datasets be made available, either as part of the grant itself or on request. Depending on agency, data has to be submitted to a open, readable repository at time of publication, but embargoes (delays)  are possible. Some examples are:

      - GenBank for sequences

      - for clinical trials data

      - PDB for structures
