Need Publisher Permission?

If you are unable to determine if you have permission to submit the final peer-reviewed manuscript to NIHMS, you will need to contact the publisher to ask for permission.  We have created a template you can use.


NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS)

Authors (or someone they delegate) can submit the final peer-reviewed manuscript (not the final published version) to the NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS).  Submitting to NIHMS is the only way an author can submit manuscripts to be added into PMC, if the journal publisher doesn't deposit it for them.

NIHMS provides a number of great tutorials and an FAQ page to help you get started using the system.
