Access to science enhanced by new NIH-ASH agreement

(WASHINGTON, September 15, 2006) The American Society of Hematology (ASHTM) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have signed an agreement that creates a new option for nonprofit publishers to comply with the NIH's Public Access Policy. Implemented by NIH on May 2, 2005, the policy has achieved less than 4% voluntary compliance.

"This new option enhances public access to the latest science and eases the process of submitting articles to NIH by allowing Blood to submit NIH-funded articles on the authors' behalf."

1) Participating nonprofit publishers will submit to NIH the final version of NIH-funded research articles upon publication. NIH will view the author as compliant with the policy and the author will not incur the burden of submitting and negotiating with NIH.

2) NIH has internal use only of the articles during the journals' embargo periods of up to 12 months.

3) Following the embargo period, NIH can publicly provide links to the articles on the journals' Web sites, and also distribute the content of articles from the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) PubMed Central (PMC) Web site.

As negotiations neared completion, a new provision was added by NIH that allows the NLM to distribute the full content of NIH-funded research articles to foreign country archives.
