NIH Public Access Policy Resources

Friday, August 15th, 2008

The new NIH Public Access Policy became effective April 7, 2008 and calls for mandatory deposit in PubMed Central of peer-reviewed electronic manuscripts stemming from NIH funding. There are a number of resources available to help librarians respond to questions from researchers. One of the challenges is understanding the policies for specific publications. I hope these resources help.
