The National Library of Medicine has announced plans to release a new NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) system later this year. The ten-minute video A New NIHMS (and PACM API) to Support Public Access provides context for the decision to rebuild the NIHMS and helps prepare librarians for changes to anticipate. The current NIHMS system has supported the NIH Public Access Policy since 2005 and has received more than 800,000 submissions. Today, NIHMS supports the policies of ten additional government agencies as well as numerous non-governmental organizations. It is NLM’s hope that this new system will allow continued support of public access to publicly-funded research results for decades to come. The video also provides an update on a new feature in a related tool, API access to data from the Public Access Compliance Monitor (PACM).
