The National Institutes of Health are tightening up the NIH Public Access Policy.
"In Spring, 2013, at the earliest, 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. The award will not be processed until recipients have demonstrated compliance. 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..."A webinar on Tuesday 1/15/2012, 12:30-2 pm EST, is meant to introduce Compliance Officials at grantee institutions to the changes. But authors and investigators are welcome to attend. Space is limited, registration is required.
