NIH Public Access Policy Compliance deadline is July 1, 2013!!

Attention faculty and researchers!

The deadline for Public Access Compliance for peer-reviewed publications resulting from NIH-funded research is July 1, 2013.

NIH will delay processing of your grant funding if all publications arising from NIH funding are not in compliance with the Public Access Policy.  

To assist you with meeting these compliance regulations, the Matas Library is offering on-demand workshops by appointment.

A new My NCBI feature now available in “My Bibliography” facilitates the management of publication compliance with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy. From the new “Awards View” eRA Commons users are able to see whether their publications are compliant with the Policy, start the manuscript submission process, associate their NIH extramural awards with their publications, and designate delegates to manage their bibliography via My NCBI.

For assistance with making sure your publications are in full compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy or to schedule a workshop for your group or department, contact Keith Pickett, Research Support & Education Librarian, at (504) 988-2406 or
