Promote Your Work

Promoting and sharing your work is an important part of the award lifecycle. Some sponsors have requirements for data sharing and public access to publications. We’re here to help you with reporting requirements, writing resources, and how to promote all the good work you’ve done.

Reporting Requirements

Under the NIH Public Access Policy a final copy of all peer-reviewed manuscripts accepted for publication that were supported in whole or in part with direct costs from NIH must be made publicly available through PubMed Central no later than 12 months after the official date of publication. More information on the policy, including how to comply, can be found here.

Data Repositories

Some funders and journals require data and code to be shared as a condition of funding or publication. Be sure to check the specific requirements of your funding agency or journal. 

**Effective January 25, 2023 NIH will require NIH-funded researchers to prospectively outline a plan to share and manage data derived from NIH-funded work. More information can be found here and FAQs here.

Guide to data preparation and archiving
Before depositing your data:
  • Ensure identifying information has been removed including information that, when combined with publicly available information, could be used to re-identify research participants. 
  • You should follow data retention policies outlined in your award terms and conditions and institutional policy.
  • Select a well-regarded discipline-specific or general-purpose data repository that meets your requirements.

Predatory Journal Testimonial

Before you publish with an unknown or questionable journal, ask yourself these questions:

  1. If the journal is open-access, is it registered with the Directory of Open Access Journals?
  2. Can you access a list of the names of the journal’s editorial and advisory boards?
  3. Are the journal's peer review and editorial policies openly available?
  4. Do you recognize the names of current contributors?
  5. Do you recognize the publisher of the journal? Is this information easy to find? Is that publisher a member of COPE (The Committee on Publication Ethics).
