HHMI public access policy

HHMI_logo

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) stipulates that if an HHMI laboratory head’s article is published in a journal in the biological or biomedical sciences, it must be made available through PMC within 12 months of publication. The policy applies to all HHMI laboratory heads, including investigators and Janelia Farm Research Campus group leaders and fellows.

HHMI and OUP journals

For OUP journals with an embargo period of 12 months or less, authors can comply with the HHMI Public Access Policy by self-archiving, or through open access publication via our Oxford Open initiative.
Please note that as self-archiving policies vary from journal to journal authors will need to refer to the self-archiving policy of the relevant journal.

For OUP journals with an embargo period of more than 12 months, the only means for authors to comply with this policy is through open access publication via our Oxford Open initiative.

OUP journals deposit all open access articles into PMC upon publication.* By publishing their article as open access, authors will automatically comply with their HHMI funding mandate and they do not need to deposit the article themselves.
