NIH has very good web tutorials for principal investigators and non-PI submitters.
Both PIs and non-PIs can submit manuscripts. If a non-PI submits the manuscript, the PI must approve the submission. In all cases, the PI must review the web version of the manuscript.
Use the NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) system to look up grant numbers and submit manuscripts.
The Hardin Library for the Health Sciences will submit your manuscript to NIHMS in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy on your behalf as a third-party submitter. For us to submit your manuscript we will need the following information and materials to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Once the manuscript has been submitted to NIHMS by the Hardin Library, NIHMS will send an email to the PI confirming the receipt of the manuscript and include a link to the submission for final approval. Manuscripts will not be posted to PMC without final approval from the PI.
