NIH Policy on Scholarly Communication
- NIH Public Access Policy
- NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS)
The NIH Public Access Policy came into effect on May 2, 2005. The Policy encourages all NIH-funded investigators to make their final manuscripts available to other researchers and the public by submitting them to PubMed Central. Visit the NIHMS FAQ for frequently asked questions about the process of submitting your manuscript.
Access to resources created for libraries, publisher, authors and the media by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition.
- Scholarly Communication Toolkit (ACRL)
The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) created this Toolkit to describe the key issues, impact, and strategies that Faculty, Librarians, and Administrators can take to address scholarly publishing issues at their institutions.
- Open Access to Government Information (MLA)
The Medical Library Association (MLA) maintains this page of news items on access to public information. Also of interest is MLA's Scholarly Communications Issues page, which provides a more in-depth look at electronic journal licensing, copyright, and information access.
