Obtaining a PubMed Central ID (PMCID)

NIH-funded investigators are required to submit (or have submitted for them) their final, peer-reviewed manuscript to PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance of publication to be made publicly available within 12 months of publication. This policy applies to NIH-funded manuscripts accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008. Note: PMCID is not the same as PMID.

What is a PMCID?

A PMCID or PubMed Central ID is an identifier assigned to articles published in the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) free digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature. Note, this is not the same as a PMID which is automatically assigned when your article is listed in PubMed.

Why do I need a PMCID?

Since you are/were funded by the NIH, you are legally required to obtain a PMCID. The NIH will now withhold funding to enforce its policy as referenced in this article published in Nature . Authors will not be allowed to list publications on NIH grant applications or progress reports if those publications are not in compliance with the policy.

How long do I have to demonstrate compliance with the PMCID policy?

You are required to obtain a PMCID within three months of publication of your article.

How do I know if my article is in compliance?

Check with your publisher about their method of compliance. There are four methods to achieve compliance with this policy. The method is entirely dependent on your journal or publisher. When submitting your article, be sure to ask about their policies for complying with the NIH Open Access Policy. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the authors to demonstrate compliance with the NIH Open Access Policy.

  • Method A: Author publishes in a journal that submits all NIH-funded final published articles to PubMed Central (PMC); no fee.
  • Method B: Author pays a publisher a fee to submit an individual final published article to PMC.
  • Method C: Author self-submits the final peer-reviewed manuscript to the NIH Manuscript Submission system (NIHMS) in preparation for posting to PMC. Authors may also ask Becker Library to submit the article on their behalf. See the Becker Library website for more information.
  • Method D: Publisher submits the final peer-reviewed manuscript to NIHMS on behalf of the NIH-funded authors in preparation for posting to PMC; no fee.

I have a PMCID, now what?

Affix the PMCID number to the appropriate article in your Biosketch, CV, and Progress Report Materials. The PMCID number demonstrates compliance with the NIH’s policy.

Also, please notify Jennifer McKanry jmckanry@wustl.edu in the CRTC of the PMCID for our reporting purposes.

 

Most recent NIH notices relevant to the PMCID requirement: NOT-OD-15.091

Specific questions about PMCIDs should be directed to Cathy Sarli sarlic@wustl.edu in the Becker Library.
