Uploading NIH-funded papers to PubMed Central

NIH Public Access Policy requires that our North American authors make all papers arising from research funded by the NIH publicly available in PubMed Central no later than 12 months after online publication in the journal.

As part of IOP Publishing’s commitment to ensure that publishing in our journals is as simple and easy as possible, and as a service to help our North American authors comply with this policy, we will now upload final, accepted manuscripts for NIH-funded papers to PubMed Central automatically, unless an author requests otherwise.

When submitting, please make sure that you correctly acknowledge any NIH funding, including the grant number, in the acknowledgments section of your paper (e.g. ‘this work was supported by NIH grant number R01 GM012345-01′).

We will automatically upload NIH-funded papers to PubMed Central unless you request otherwise.

The corresponding author will receive an email from PubMed Central asking them to approve the deposited manuscript.

Authors’ articles will be made publicly available no later than 12 months from the date of online publication, in accordance with the NIH policy.
