NIH Public Access Policy

The NIH now requires public access to NIH funded research publications.  See the link for details.


The NIH has a website where information is available about grants and the research they fund.  The Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT) has a ‘user friendly system,’ the RePORT Expenditures and Results, or RePORTER system.  RePORTER combines NIH project databases and funding records, PubMed abstracts, full text articles from PubMed Central, and information from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office with a robust search engine, allowing users to locate descriptions and funding details on NIH-funded projects along with research results that site NIH support.  RePORTER replaces NIH’s CRISP system.
