NIH plans to implement these changes to the compliance requirements and procedures for the NIH Public Access Policy by Spring 2013 at the earliest. Among the changes, NIH will delay processing of non-competing continuation grant awards if publications arising from that award are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy. The award will not be processed until recipients have demonstrated compliance.
