Webinar: NIH Access Policy Compliance

March 15, 2011 - 12:30-1:30pm

This webinar will provide an overview of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy.

We will answer any questions you may have on compliance, copyright or the process of submitting your article to PubMed Central. We will also cover how to cite and how to include PMCID numbers in your EndNote libraries.

NIH requires researchers who receive funding from them to submit their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts of their journal articles to PubMed Central. By making journal articles freely accessibly through PubMed Central, you can increase your citation count, readership and impact. 

Register for this webinar here.

If you have any questions that you would like answered during the webinar, contact Laurissa Gann ( ; 713-794-1111)
