Public Access Compliance: How Do I Make This Paper Compliant?

This LibGuide will walk users through issues of compliance with the NIH

NIHMS Process

How To Make Papers Compliant - The NIHMS

Go to the NIHMS System home page,

Login using the same credentials that you use to login to eRA Commons and My NCBI. (Note: The NIH has made many changes to how we log in, if you are having issues either contact the library or the NIH Helpdesk directly).

Once you are finished with the submission, the manuscript will be put in the queue for conversion to its web version. You will be notified by email when the Web Proof is ready for review. Ensure that all emails regarding the submission are answered promptly to limit the delay in deposition to PMC.

  • NIHMS FAQs are located here. NIHMS Submission Tutorials are located here.

Note: The NIH Manuscript Submission Reference Number (NIHMSID) is a temporary identifier to be used only until the PubMed Central Reference Number (PMCID) has been assigned. For this reason, the NIHMSID becomes invalid 3 months after the paper is published. See this NIH Notice for more information.
