Change in NIH funded author obligations

NIH will delay processing of non-competing continuation grant awards if publications arising from that award are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy.  This change will take effect in tandem with NIH requiring the use of the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPRs) for all Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP) and Fellowship awards in the Spring of 2013 (see NIH NOT-OD-12-142).

Principal investigator’s and all members of a research team must comply with the NIH Public Access Policy for any article that is published in connection with an NIH grant, contract, cooperative agreement, or research funded by the NIH intramural program, awarded after April 7, 2008.

Further information on your responsibilities under the NIH Public Access Policy is on the Himmelfarb Library website: http://www.gwumc.edu/library/portals/nihaccess.cfm.  For submission assistance, please email nihaccess@gwu.edu and a Himmelfarb librarian will respond.
