NNLM Resource Picks – PubMed Central

Join us for the next NNLM Resource Picks webinar on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. In this session, Kathryn Funk from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will present her work with PubMed Central (PMC), the free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature. In 2005, the voluntary NIH Public Access Policy was announced, and since that time over 700,000 author manuscripts have been processed and archived in PubMed Central. In 2009, the Omnibus Appropriations Act mandated NIH-funded investigators to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts to the database. More recently the NLM adopted a new Collection and Preservation Policy in 2019 to develop high-traffic NLM databases such as PMC in order to link the biomedical and scientific literature with data and other research objects in a digital landscape.

In this way, the use of PMC in scholarly communications supports Goal 1 of the NLM’s 2017-2027 Strategic Plan – “Accelerate discovery and advance health by providing the tools for data-driven research”. With Open Access Week taking place from October 19-25, we would love to hear how you use PMC and other open access resources to support and engage in research.
