NIH Public Access Policy Applies to Awards with July 1 Start Dates

The National Institutes of Health has published Changes to Public Access Policy Compliance Efforts Apply to All Awards with Anticipated Start Dates on or after July 1, 2013 (NOT-OD-13-042):

For non-competing continuation grant awards with a start date of July 1, 2013 or beyond:
  1. NIH will delay processing of an award if publications arising from it are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy.
  2. Investigators will need to use My NCBI to enter papers onto progress reports.  Papers can be associated electronically using the RPPR, or included in the PHS 2590 using the My NCBI generated PDF report.
For more information, see Upcoming Changes to Public Access Policy Reporting Requirements and Related NIH Efforts to Enhance Compliance (NOT-OD-12-160).

The NIH Rock Talk post, Update on NIH’s Public Access Policy, provides additional details and resources.
