The NIH Public Access policy requires researchers to deposit publications resulting from NIH funding to PubMed Central within 12 months of publication. Failure to comply with this policy results in delays in funding or grant proposal processing. Libraries are taking the lead in providing guidance to both researchers and grant administrators in public access compliance, and as more public access policies roll out from federal funding agencies in response to last year’s mandate from the Office of Science and Technology Policy, we expect an increase in demand for such support. This Quick Take session will briefly describe the NIH policy, common pitfalls in compliance and one university library’s response to researcher needs for support.

Program Takeaways

  1. Come away with a better understanding of the implications of public access policies for libraries and researchers.

  2. Learn about one model for support by an academic library for researchers that need to comply with new federal public access policies.
