Title: Assessing Institutional Compliance with the National Institutes of Health Public Access Policy
Objective: This longitudinal study assesses compliance with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy at a large academic institution. A previous study reported compliance data for the first year of the policy’s implementation. This collection of data from the second year allows a comparison of trends and creates a more robust profile of researcher compliance, helping to inform library efforts in outreach and education regarding open and public access issues.
Methods: The NIH public access policy requires that researchers submit to PubMed Central all peer-reviewed manuscripts deriving from NIH funds upon acceptance for publication. This study examines policy compliance during the second year of implementation to obtain data about all publications, including those subject to publisher embargoes. It compares first- to second-year compliance data to provide new information about institutional and researcher patterns. A list of citations was generated via a PubMed search using the following parameters:
• at least one author is a university affiliate
• declared NIH funding
• published April 2009-2010
The list was refined to include only citations where a university author was the primary investigator of the NIH grant. PMCIDs were obtained for citations on the refined list. Data were collected and analyzed.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
