With this Notice, NIH informs grantees that in Spring, 2013, at the earliest, NIH will delay processing of non-competing continuation grant awards if publications arising from that award are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy. The award will not be processed until recipients have demonstrated compliance. This change will take effect in tandem with NIH requiring the use of the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPRs) for all Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP) and Fellowship awards in the Spring of 2013.
NIH made changes to My NCBI that improve the workflow and communication between PD/PIs and non- PD/PI authors. It is now easier for PD/PIs to track compliance of all papers arising from their
awards, even they do not author those papers. (See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/ja12/ja12_myncbi_new_features.html for details).
