How Will This Policy Affect You?

How Will This Policy Affect You?
  1. Does the NIH Public Access Policy apply to me? 

    The Policy applies to you if your peer-reviewed article is based on work in one or more of the following categories:

    1. Directly1 funded by an NIH grant or cooperative agreement active in Fiscal Year 2008 (October 1, 2007- September 30, 2008) or beyond;
    2. Directly1 funded by a contract signed on or after April 7, 2008;
    3. Directly funded by the NIH Intramural Program.
    4. If NIH pays your salary.

  2. To what types of articles does the NIH Public Access Policy apply?

    The Policy applies to all peer-reviewed journal articles, including research reports and reviews. The Policy does not apply to non-peer-reviewed materials such as correspondence, book chapters, and editorials.

  3. My article is based on research only partially funded by NIH. Is the article required to be submitted?

    Yes. The NIH Public Access Policy applies to all peer-reviewed journal articles that arise from the NIH intramural program or any amount of direct costs1 funded by NIH, regardless of the source or amount of other funding.

  4. My article is based on research funded by a grant or cooperative agreement that expired before Fiscal Year 2008. Is the article required to be submitted?

    No, submission is not required. But you may submit your article if you want to and have appropriate copyright permission.

  5. My article is based on research funded by a contract awarded before April 7, 2008. Is the article required to be submitted?

    No, submission is not required. But you may submit your article if you want to and have appropriate copyright permission.

  6. Can I submit articles accepted for publication prior to April 7, 2008?

    Yes. You may submit your article if you want to and have appropriate copyright permission.

  7. Am I responsible for articles that arise from my NIH funded project for which I am not an author?

    Principal Investigators and their Institutions are responsible for ensuring all terms and conditions of awards are met. This includes the submission of articles that arise directly from their awards, even if they are not an author or co-author of the publication. Principal Investigators and their Institutions should ensure that the authors are aware of and comply with the NIH Public Access Policy.
