National Institutes of Health (NIH) (25 Dec 2007)
MANDATE URL and TEXT
The Director of the National Institutes of Health shall require that all investigators funded by the NIH submit or have submitted for them to the National Library of Medicine's PubMed Central an electronic version of their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts upon acceptance for publication, to be made publicly available no later than 12 months after the official date of publication: Provided, That the NIH shall implement the public access policy in a manner consistent with copyright law.
"direct feeds from [institutional repositories (IRs) are]... worthwhile... but... raise important technical and logistical challenges regarding author approval, copyright permissions, quality control, and formats for electronic transfer. The NIH remains open to closer collaboration with institutional [repositories] and will consider this issue as the Policy matures."
