As of July, 2013, the NIH will delay processing of non-competing continuation grant awards if publications arising from the award are not in compliance with the public access policy.
The award will not be processed until recipients have demonstrated compliance. Compliance with the Public Access Policy is not a factor in the evaluation of grant applications; non-compliance will be addressed administratively and may delay or prevent awarding of funds. To determine if the policy applies to you, visit: http://publicaccess.nih.gov/determine_applicability.htm
Applications, Proposals and Reports must include evidence of compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy for all applicable papers that are authored by the Principal Investigator (PI) or arose from the PI’s NIH funds.
The Policy applies to any manuscript that arises from:
- Any direct funding from an NIH grant or cooperative agreement active in Fiscal Year 2008 or beyond
- Any direct funding from an NIH contract signed on or after April 7, 2008
- Any direct funding from the NIH Intramural Program
- Is peer-reviewed
- And, is accepted for publication in a journal on or after April 7, 2008
