Grant Support

Federal and University resources are identified for funding opportunities and monitoring compliance. Contact Ask-A-Librarian for specific support with federal open access or data sharing policies.

NIH Public Access Policy

The National Institutes Health (NIH) Public Access Policy (Public Law 110-161) requires that any peer-reviewed manuscript resulting in whole or in part from direct funding paid by the NIH or NIH staff must be submitted in electronic format to the National Library of Medicine's digital archive, PubMed Central (PMC), within three months of publication.

The NIH will delay processing of non-competing continuation grant awards if publications resulting from that award are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy. To determine the required steps, view the NIH overview for Submission Methods.

Additional details and other information, including video tutorials and examples, can be viewed at the NIH Public Access Policy website.

Federal Data Sharing

For information on additional federal data sharing policies, visit Research Data at Emory or the jointly sponsored Rigor and Reproducibility Seminar Series.
