ARL guide to NIH public access policy now online

The Association of Research Libraries has developed a Web-based guide to assist research institutions in implementing the new Public Access Policy adopted by the National Institutes of Health. The new NIH Public Access Policy, which becomes effective April 7, 2008, calls for mandatory deposit in PubMed Central of peer-reviewed electronic manuscripts stemming from NIH funding. The change from a voluntary to mandatory policy creates new expectations, not just of funded investigators, but also of the grantee institutions that support those investigators
