NMISTC Report March 6, 2010 3 Automatic submission of IEEE TNS and TMI papers to PubMed Central NIH now requires that all publications resulting from NIH-funded research be submitted to PubMed Central within one year of their publication. IEEE currently allows authors to comply with this requirement but requires authors themselves to perform the submission to PubMed Central. NMISC voted unanimously to support a change in IEEE's publication procedure such that papers on work supported by NIH would automatically be submitted to PubMed Central by IEEE. This motion was supported by NPSS AdCom and a letter from the NPSS President (Craig Woody) was sent to IEEE Publication Services and Products Board (PSPB).
