NIH Public Access Policy

General Information

Tutorials and Presentations


  • WCM Letter to Publishers - submit this letter with your manuscript, alerting the publisher that the manuscript is subject to the NIH policy, and that Weill Cornell Medicine expects compliance with this policy.

  • WCM Compliance Guide for the NIH Mandate - a document to help you comply with the new requirements, it details important rights issues, as well as where to go for help or more information.

  • WCM Medical Library Glossary - definitions of terms that you may see during the submission process

  • NIH Submission Flowchart - a flowchart containing the steps needed to comply with the new requirements

NOTE: A separate submission is not necessary if a manuscript has been accepted by a journal that submits articles directly to PubMed Central on behalf of their authors. Publication in one of these journals requires no further action on the part of authors to comply with the submission requirement of the NIH Public Access Policy.
