Publisher policies on NIH-funded authors

The Open Access Directory (OAD) is pleased to announce that its list of Publisher policies on NIH-funded authors is now open for community editing and enlargement.

The list starts with 204 links to publisher policies and 26 annotations.  We've very grateful to Arta Dobbs (University of Connecticut Health Center), Molly Keener (Wake Forest University Health Sciences), and P. Scott Lapinski (Harvard Medical School) for their hard work in developing this foundation on which the public can now build.

OAD is a wiki  and we encourage all users to help keep it comprehensive, accurate, and up to date.  We especially encourage publishers with a policy on NIH-funded authors to make sure that their policy is included on the new list.
