The NIH Mandate One Year On: How Are Libraries Responding?
Thomas, William Joseph
About one year ago, the landmark National Institutes of Health Public Access Policy began requiring authors who receive NIH funding to deposit final versions of their accepted manuscripts to NIH’s PubMed Central database. These papers would then become freely available to the public no later than 12 months after publication. How are academic libraries responding? Results of a survey will be complemented by interviews with selected librarians to provide insights into who’s doing what, and how successful these libraries feel they have been.
