NMRFAM Publications

NMRFAM research and collaborations have resulted in a large number of publications in leading peer-reviewed journals and books since its founding in 1985, over 154 in the past five years. As result of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy adopted in 2008, NMRFAM publications published after early 2008 are freely available to any researcher or student through the NIH’s PubMed Central (PMC) database. As of August, 2013, there are approximately 3 million articles now archived in PMC.

All publications resulting from research at NMRFAM must be deposited into the PMC as detailed here:

On January 11, 2008, the policy was adopted and requires all NIH-funded investigators to submit their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts to the PMC's digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature upon acceptance for journal publication. Compliance with the policy is a term and condition of all grants and cooperative agreements active in Fiscal Year 2008 or beyond, and for all contracts awarded after April 7, 2008. The new policy implements a Congressional statutory directive under which the Director of the [NIH] shall require that all investigators funded by the NIH submit or have submitted for them to [PMC] an electronic version of their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts upon acceptance for publication, to be made publicly available no later than 12 months after the official date of publication and in a manner consistent with copyright law.

Additionally, all publications resulting from research at NMRFAM must acknowledge NMRFAM in their publication with the following statement:

This study made use of the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison, which is supported by NIH grants P41 GM103399 (NIGMS) and P41GM66326 (NIGMS). Additional equipment was purchased with funds from the University of Wisconsin, the NIH (RR02781, RR08438), the NSF (DMB-8415048, OIA-9977486, BIR-9214394), and the USDA.

It is very important that you acknowledge the facility in all of your publications that benefited from NMRFAM. The main reason for this is that the NIH Biomedical Technology Program scans all publications for grant numbers and uses this information to justify their budget. This, in turn, has an impact on the funds they can make available to support our facility.
