So the folks at NIH are putting investigators’ feet to the fire with the NIH Public Access Policy.  As of 2009 August 21, the NIHMSID can only be used for up to three months after a paper is published in order to indicate compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.  An FAQ is available here.

Remember, the NIHMSID is assigned as soon as you submit your final, peer-reviewed, accepted manuscript to NIHMS (the National Institutes of Health Manuscript Submission system).  You may use this identifier only temporarily until the PMCID is assigned.

How do you ensure a timely PMCID assignment?

  1. Submit your manuscript as soon as possible
  2. Approve your PDF receipt as soon as possible
  3. Review and approve the web version as soon as possible

In other words, ASAP.  Hey, we’re around to help so email nihms-library-support (, if you questions.
