How to Submit Manuscripts and Abstracts


How to Submit Manuscripts and Abstracts


Forms and procedures for the clearance of manuscripts and abstracts before submission and how to report papers after acceptance.

Prior to Submission

Per NIH policy, all scientific manuscripts (journals, books or abstracts for meeting presentations) should be approved prior to submission. Fellows/staff publishing a paper that does not include their PI should be approved by their PI. PIs should have their Lab/Branch Chief approve. Chiefs should have their CCR Deputy Director approve. The NIH Manuscript/Abstract Clearance form should be kept on file by the Lab/Branch. If the manuscript is related to dual use research or select agents, please alert your Scientific Director prior to submission. All peer-reviewed manuscripts must be submitted to the publisher with the NIH Publishing Agreement & Manuscript Cover Sheet upon the initial submission of a manuscript for review. The cover sheet also must be submitted to the publisher upon acceptance for publication, in lieu of signing a publisher's agreement.

After Acceptance

After your paper has been accepted by a journal, obtain a purchase order, then complete the CCR Accepted Publications Report form. All reported papers will appear in the CCR Monthly Manuscript Report.

If you feel your paper is particularly newsworthy and may merit press coverage, please submit the paper before it is published to “Tell CCR” at ncitellccr@mail.nih.gov.  We have a variety of ways to disseminate your research findings via various communications channels.

As of April 7, 2008, your peer-reviewed papers should be submitted to PubMed Central (PMC) immediately upon acceptance for publication by a journal. PMC will make these papers publicly available within 12 months of publication. The Policy applies to all peer-reviewed papers that you author or co-author as part of your NIH duties, even if the corresponding author or other authors are not supported by NIH. For more information, see Depositing Papers in PubMed Central (PMC).

Communications Resources


Communications Resources


The main communications goals of CCR’s Office of the Director are to:

  • Inform the academic research community, the public and stakeholders about our scientific research advances
  • Support the recruitment of patients for our clinical trials
  • Support the recruitment of well-qualified scientific faculty, trainees, and laboratory and administrative staff
  • Support internal communications for all CCR staff

Do you have news you would like to share? "Tell CCR" about activities that might be important for CCR to communicate about, like awards or recognition you or your staff receive, or your upcoming high-impact papers that have just been accepted by a journal.

Send your news to ncitellccr@mail.nih.gov.

Do you have questions about communications?  You can also ask “Tell CCR” or contact Li Gwatkin.

Interacting with Members of the Media


Interacting with Members of the Media


Any interaction with members of the news media needs to be coordinated by the NCI’s Press Office, also known as the Media Relations Branch in the Office of Communications and Public Liaison (OCPL). Contact the Media Relations Branch via phone at 240-760-6600 or ncipressofficers@mail.nih.gov.

If you are attending a meeting/conference, you are automatically cleared to discuss the science on which you are presenting at the meeting with a member of the media, but not other topics (such as someone else's presentation). You should inform the Press Office soon after the interaction. However, if you are busy or uncomfortable while at the meeting, you can/should decline or ask them to contact the NCI press office to schedule a meeting/call at another time.   

The Media Relations Branch offers a number of services (NIH login required) including:

  • Assistance in deciding whether and how to accept a request for a media interview
  • Media training in anticipation of a publication or presentation

Depositing Papers in PubMed Central (PMC)


Depositing Papers in PubMed Central (PMC)


As of April 7, 2008, your peer-reviewed papers should be submitted to PubMed Central (PMC) immediately upon acceptance for publication by a journal. PMC will make these papers publicly available within 12 months of publication. The Policy applies to all peer-reviewed papers that you author or co-author as part of your NIH duties, even if the corresponding author or other authors are not supported by NIH.

Many, but not all, journals will handle the entire process for the NIH author; this is known as “Method A”.  In addition, there are 3 other submission methods available to you.  All 4 methods are summarized below.

Questions?  Contact Sue Fox or Brenda Boersma


PMC Submission Methods


Method A:  

Journal makes the final published version available in PMC no later than 12 months after publication without author involvement.

A list of these journals can be found at https://publicaccess.nih.gov/submit_process_journals.htm 

  • Tip:  Use the search box to look up a journal title.

Method B: 

These publishers do not automatically deposit every NIH-funded paper in PMC. 

Rather, the NIH author can choose to arrange with the journal for deposit of a specific article; this usually involves choosing the journal’s fee-based OPEN ACCESS option for publishing that article.

A list of these journals/publishers can be found at https://publicaccess.nih.gov/select_deposit_publishers.htm

Method C: 

The NIH author or other third party (e.g., administrative staff) deposits the final peer-reviewed manuscript into the NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) system.  

When the manuscript is submitted by a third party, the NIH author is still responsible for approving the intial submission in NIHMS and reviewing and approving the PMC-ready web version of the paper for inclusion in PubMed Central after the submitted files have been converted.  An embargo/release date can be set by the NIH author, if needed.

See "Methods C and D Best Practices" at https://publicaccess.nih.gov/Methods-C-D-BP

Method D: 

The journal publisher deposits the final peer-reviewed manuscript into NIHMS.

IMPORTANT:  Regardless of who starts and manages the submission process, NIH authors and awardees are responsible for ensuring that the final, peer-reviewed manuscript is deposited into the NIHMS upon acceptance for publication.​
