NIH Public Access Policy Case Study - Google Docs

"Widely considered a successful implementation, the National Institutes of Health instituted a Term and Condition of Award to its extensive research grants program requiring recipients to deposit their article manuscripts in the PubMed Central repository upon acceptance in a peer-reviewed journal. Manuscripts, including all supplemental materials and graphics, must be made publicly available on PubMed Central within 12 months of the official publication date. The policy transitioned from a voluntary system of deposits in 2005 to an obligatory one in April 2008, stepping up compliance with consequences like funding delays starting in 2013. Because of the unconditional nature of the grant condition, the NIH Public Access Policy is better known as the NIH mandate--and occasionally as the NIH Open Access Mandate, although the policy does not specify that grant recipients must use the Open Access publishing model, in which authors pay for publication.
