To advance science and improve human health, NIH makes the peer-reviewed articles it funds publicly available on PubMed Central. The NIH public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication.
- NIH My Bibliography My Bibliography is a reference tool that helps you save your citations directly from PubMed or, if not found there, to manually enter citations using My Bibliography templates.
- NIH Public Access Policy Process Map 101 (U-M Library Research Guides) This downloadable PDF provides a visual step-by-step process map to simplify the compliance process.
- NIH PubMed Central PubMed Central® (PMC) is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM).

A request typically to a funding institution, for additional time beyond the originally awarded grant end-date, to finish the scientific portion of a project. Requests for extensions are initiated by a Principal Investigator and are appropriate if additional time beyond the established expiration date is required to assure adequate completion of the original scope of work within the funds already made available. The fact that funds will remain at the expiration date is not in itself justification for an extension.
A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) ensures that discussions are kept confidential while interested parties determine if they should pursue future sponsored activity. NDAs can also be referred to as confidentiality agreements (CDA), or proprietary information agreements (PIA).
Looking for a sample NDA? Visit our Standard Agreements and Templates page.
Sponsored research activities may require access to information that is proprietary or otherwise considered by the sponsor to be privileged and confidential. Such information must be specifically identified by the sponsor and must be determined to be confidential within the definitions of the Michigan FOIA.
Maintaining the confidentiality of such information is primarily the responsibility of the principal investigator (PI) and project team. However, faculty and staff with access to the confidential information undertake this responsibility as part of their employment agreement. The U-M Research Ethics and Compliance policy on the Research Integrity contain further guidelines regarding acceptance and use of confidential information.
Not Separately Priced. This is an acronym used in contracts for an item that is not separately priced (NSP), but the price is included in the unit price of another contract line item.
