NIH Public Access Policy

NIH Public Access Policy: In order to assist our authors who have NIH funding to comply with this policy, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. publishers will deposit the final accepted paper (after copy-editing and proofreading) to PubMed Central (PMC) on behalf of the authors.  Authors need not take any action. The manuscript's public access posting on PMC will occur 12 months after final publication. This service is provided free of charge.  Please note that authors may not deposit manuscripts directly to PMC or other sites without permission from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

Authors who would like their papers to be posted on LiebertPub.com immediately without this embargo period will have the option to make their articles available free on line via Liebert Open Option for a one-time fee of $3,200. This fee also makes the article free in perpetuity on the LiebertPub.com site. If you've received NIH funding we will also immediately deposit your paper to PMC.

Authors Funded by HHMI and Wellcome Trust: Please follow the instructions for Liebert Open Option above.
