AAI offer a free manuscript deposition service to PMC/UKPMC

The American Association of Immunologists, publisher of The Journal of Immunology, have launched a new, free service to authors, to deposit selected manuscripts to PubMed Central (PMC).  Articles deposited in PMC are automatically mirrored to UKPMC.

“Several funding bodies, including the National Institutes of Health, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Wellcome Trust and Medical Research Council, mandate that authors deposit published articles into PMC or UKPMC.  While these mandates apply to authors, not publishers, the new AAI service will help authors comply with these mandates.

On behalf of authors who are funded by such bodies, AAI will deposit all manuscripts that begin submission to The Journal of Immunology after March 29, 2011 and are ultimately accepted for publication; the author must select this option on the online submission form in order for AAI to do so.  AAI will deposit the version of the manuscript that has undergone peer review and has been accepted for publication, before copyediting and formatting”.

All UKPMC funders mandate that articles be made available to the public in PMC at 6 months after publication; manuscripts deposited by AAI will comply with thus embargo period.
