Access seminar on NIH's Public Access Policy: Information and Tools to Ensure Compliance
If you were unable to join us for the March 29 seminar: NIH’s Public Access Policy: Information and Tools to Ensure Compliance, please find below links to the recording of the March 29 presentation by KUCR staff member Alicia Reed. Her presentation focused on using My NCBI to manage your publications and to prepare the publications portion of your next RPPR, plus many other options. For anyone with NIH funding, compliance with the NIH guidelines on public access to publications is critical, especially since the guidelines include plans for NIH to withhold funding for grants which produce publications that do not comply.

Here is a link to the audio seminar presentation by Ms. Reed.  Here is a link to the PowerPoint presentation.

  • Dr. Steven Andrew Rogers was hired as the Manager of the Medicinal Chemistry Core in April 2012
