NIH Public Access Compliance: Why Is This Paper Non-Compliant?

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

The Red Exclamation Point

If one of your publications has the red exclamation point, then that publication is Non-Compliant, and we need to address that as soon as possible.  The red exclamation point only appears if the paper has been published 3 or more months ago and has not been submitted into the NIHMS.  There are only 2 ways to remove the red exclamation point:

  1. Edit the Status of the paper to be Non-Applicable (see the tab labeled, "Do I Need to Deal With This?")
  2. Submit the Paper through the NIHMS.  The tab "How Do I Make This Paper Compliant?" will walk you through this process.
