Reflecting the National Library of Medicine’s ongoing commitment to public access support at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and beyond, a new NIHMS system will be released on January 23, 2020. This new system aims to streamline the submission process, ensure the continued quality of manuscripts made publicly accessible, and give authors and investigators more transparent options for avoiding processing delays. Anyone familiar with the current NIHMS system will find the basic steps of submitting, reviewing, and approving manuscripts for inclusion in PMC unchanged in the new system. There will be an updated user interface that simplifies the login process for returning users; provides contextual help throughout; and offers user-friendly options for importing article metadata, requesting corrections, and taking over the Reviewer role for stalled submissions. A video with details of these updates and more is available.

By investing in NIHMS, the goal is to continue to ensure the public has access to publicly and privately funded research results. Please contact the NIHMS help desk if you have any questions. Further updates will be provided after the release date. The NIH developed the NIHMS system to facilitate the submission of peer-reviewed manuscripts for inclusion in PubMed Central (PMC) in support of the NIH Public Access Policy. NIHMS has been operated by the NLM since its inception in 2005 and has processed over 725,000 submissions in that time. In the ensuing years, it has expanded to support the public access policies of numerous other funding organizations and government agencies.
