NIH Releases Draft Public Access Policy and Draft Supplemental Guidance for Public Feedback

NIH is releasing a draft of its updated Public Access Policy in support of its mission to advance access to NIH-funded research results.  The draft policy outlines how NIH proposes to address the Administration’s 2022 Memo on Ensuring Free, Immediate, and Equitable Access to Federally Funded Research through additional steps to accelerate access.

Additionally, NIH is proposing supplementary draft guidance on government use license and rights and publication costs to assist the community with implementing the proposal.  These materials reflect input received in response to the February 2023 NIH Plan to Enhance Public Access to the Results of NIH-Supported Research.

Public comments on the NIH’s Draft Public Access Policy and draft Supplemental Guidance will be accepted until August 19, 2024, and can be submitted through the comment portal found here.
