Open Science Policy Statements for AHA Funded Research

peter.suber's bookmarks 2014-03-07


“'Outbound' Public Access The AHA requires that all journal articles resulting from AHA funding ('outbound' research) should be made freely available in PubMed Central within 12 months of publication.  It will be the responsibility of the author to ensure this occurs.  Mechanism The AHA has adopted the procedures put in place by the Health Research Alliance (HRA). The HRA has arranged for its member organizations (including AHA) to establish a mechanism by which grant recipients can deposit papers directly into PubMed Central. More information is available here.  Timeline All new grants awarded for applications due starting in July 2014, must comply with the outbound Public Access policy. Active grant holders are encouraged (though not required) to adhere to the policy for any articles published after July 1, 2014. “Inbound” Public Access All original research articles in the 11 subscription-model HA journals are made freely available on that AHA journal website after six months. All other articles in AHA journals are freely available on the AHA journal web site one year after publication. Statements and clinical practice guidelines are always freely available upon publication. If an author identifies in the manuscript, per the instructions to authors, that the manuscript is funded by a funder that requires deposit of the manuscript in PubMed Central, such as the NIH or the AHA, the publisher will deposit the manuscript in PMC on behalf of the author. It remains the legal responsibility of the author(s) to confirm with the funder the provenance of their manuscript for purposes of deposit. The Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA) is an Open Access journal published by AHA. Because it is Open Access using an author pays model, if the author’s paper is accepted the author pays for publication costs. The author also keeps copyright and the AHA has a license to publish the article. Articles are deposited in PubMed Central upon publication ..."
