American Association for Cancer Research - Manuscript deposition service

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) - publishers of journals such as Cancer Research and Molecular Cancer Research - have announced the launch of their manuscript deposition service.

Designed to assist journal authors in meeting their funders' archiving mandates, authors of articles published in AACR journals can elect to have the AACR deposit their accepted manuscripts to PubMed Central or UK PubMed Central, thereby meeting the archiving requirements of the National Institutes of Health, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council.

For authors that choose to take advantage of this service, AACR will upload the accepted version of the manuscript to the repository upon acceptance, with a release date of twelve months (for National Institutes of Health) or six months (for Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Cancer Research UK, Wellcome Trust, and the Medical Research Council) post-publication.

No fee is charged for this service.
