NIH Public Access Policy ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH funded research. It requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication. This policy became effective with manuscripts accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008. UVM's Office of Sponsored Programs has more information on its web page.
