Webinar: Changes to the NIH Public Access Policy & the Implications
Location: 91 Prospect Avenue, Great room
Since 2008, compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy has been a statutory requirement and a term and condition of all grant awards and cooperative agreements. The NIH recently announced Upcoming Changes to Public Access Policy Reporting Requirements and Related NIH Efforts to Enhance Compliance (NOT-OD-12-160). As early as Spring 2013, the NIH will hold processing of non-competing continuation awards if publications arising from grant awards are not in compliance with the Public Access Policy. In conjunction with these changes, the NIH has released new tools and enhancements that make it easier for investigators report compliance information, and for investigators and institutions to track compliance.
The NIH is offering a webinar to help grantee institutions better understand these changes. It will:
• Describe the policy change
• Provide an overview of My NCBI, a tool investigators use to track and report compliance
• Describe the Public Access Compliance Monitor, a web based tool institutions can use to track public access compliance
• Advise participants on where to find additional resources and training materials
12:30 p.m.– 2:00 p.m.
