On U.S. NIH’s PubMed Central repository:

  • In compliance with the Public Access Policy of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, AIP Publishing will automatically deposit, with the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed Central (PMC) online repository, any journal article published after 6 April 2008 that reports research funded, at least in part, by the NIH. AIP Publishing will deposit the article with PMC in final, published form, along with its associated metadata, upon publication, and will provide authors with the PMCID number once it has been assigned. Please note, however, that the full text of the article will not become available on PMC until one year after publication.
  • For articles for which the author has paid AIP Publishing’s fees for open access publication (either via the AIP Publishing Author Select® program or for an AIP open-access journal), AIP Publishing will notify the repository that they may post the article upon publication by AIP Publishing and its transmission by AIP Publishing to the repository.
  • Authors need only to sign the AIP Publishing Transfer of Copyright Agreement without any amendments or substitutions in order to be fully compliant with institutional repository requirements, such as those imposed by Harvard, MIT, and other universities. Our agreement respects the spirit of the initiative toward self-archiving of material and supports the basic premise that authors have freedom to reuse their own work for scholarly, noncommercial purposes.
