The National Institutes of Health have a new policy requiring authors of peer-reviewed articles based on NIH-funded research to ensure that those articles are deposited in NIH's free public-access online archive PubMed Central. This policy goes into effect with all articles accepted for publication on or after April 8, 2008.

Presented here is information designed to assist UNL researchers in selecting appropriate publishers and journals and managing their copyrights so as to allow for the mandatory NIH deposit.

For specific questions or information, contact Paul Royster, Coordinator of Scholarly Communications, UNL Libraries; email proyster@unl.edu or tel 472-3628.
