Avoid Funding Delays by Ensuring Your Progress Reports are Compliant with the Public Access Policy

To advance science and improve human health, peer-reviewed articles arising from NIH funds must be made available to the public on PubMed Central. Grantees should ensure their peer-reviewed manuscripts arising NIH funds are deposited into PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication, as well as reported in their annual Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs), to be compliant with the NIH public access policy.
