NIH Public Access Compliance: Overview

NIH Public Access Policy

NIH logo
 To advance science and improve human health, NIH makes the peer-reviewed articles it funds publicly available on PubMed Central. The NIH public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication. 

Types of Grants

The NIH has different types of grants and this website allows one to look up codes and different grants:

NIH uses activity codes (e.g. R01, R43, etc.) to differentiate the wide variety of research-related programs. NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) may vary in the way they use activity codes. Look closely at Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) to determine which ICs participate and the specifics of eligibility.
