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

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


‚ÄčThis section is being updated to reflect changes in the new NCBI website overhaul.  Please bear with us.

The Red Dot

If one of your publications has the red dot, then that publication is Non-Compliant, and we need to address that to bring it into compliance.  The red dot 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 dot:

  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.
