Compliance With NIH and Other Research Funding Agency Accessibility Requirements
- Several research funding agencies now require or request authors to submit the post-print (the article after peer review and acceptance but not the final published article) to a repository that is accessible online by all without charge. Within medical research, 3 funding agencies in particular have announced such policies:
- The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires authors to deposit post-prints of articles, which have received NIH funding, in its repository PubMed Central (PMC). This deposit should be done within the 12 months after publication of the final article in the journal.
- The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) requires, as a condition of research grants, deposit in PMC, but within 6 months after publication of the final article.
- The Wellcome Trust requires, as a condition of research grants, deposit in UK PMC within 6 months after publication of the final article.
- As a service to authors, the Publisher (Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins) of the AHA journals will identify to PMC articles that require depositing. The Copyright Transfer Agreement provides the primary mechanism for identifying such articles.
- WKH/LWW will transmit the post-print of an article, which is based on research funded in whole or in part by 1 or more of these 3 agencies, to PMC.
- On NIH request, it remains the legal responsibility of the author(s) to confirm with the NIH the provenance of their manuscript for purposes of deposit.
- Author(s) will not deposit their articles themselves.
- Author(s) will not alter the post-print already transmitted to NIH.
- Author(s) will not authorize the display of the post-print prior to 12 months after publication of the final article, in the case of NIH, or 6 months after publication of the final article, in the case of HHMI and the Wellcome Trust.
