Since 2008, compliance to the NIH public access policy is a statutory requirement and a term and condition of all grant awards and cooperative agreements. Recently, NIH announced upcoming changes to public access policy reporting requirements and related NIH efforts to enhance compliance.
To help grantee institutions improve their understanding of the public access policy, NIH will host an online training webinar on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. This webinar is designed for compliance officials at grantee institutions, though authors and investigators are welcome to attend. Presenters will talk about the policy changes and discuss resources and web tools that NIH has made available to help track compliance, such as MyNCBI and the Public Access Compliance Monitor. For more information and to register for the training, visit the webinar website. A recording of the webinar will be posted on this page for later viewing, as well.
