Select Deposit Publishers (Method B)

The publishers listed below do not automatically deposit every NIH-funded paper in PMC. Rather, the author can choose to arrange with the journal for the deposit of a specific article; this usually involves choosing the journal's fee-based open access option for publishing that article. Please contact the respective journals directly for details on their programs.

Did you make arrangements with one of the journals or publishers listed below to have the final published version of your paper posted directly to PubMed Central (i.e. pay an open access fee)?

If yes, you are using Submission Method B.

If no, submit your paper through the NIHMS. See Methods C and D Best Practices
