A Public Health Research Guide

Graduate program offerings are held at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work and the Medical School. Undergraduate courses are offered through the Anthropology Department.

NIH Public Access Policy

The NIH Public Access Policy ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH funded research. It requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication.

When you have questions, please ask:

  • Library Director at the Brown School Library
  • Ruth Lewis, Scholarly Communications Coordinator in Olin Library

Information sessions are held regularly at the Medical Campus and scheduled on request for individuals or groups on the Danforth Campus. Please contact the Library Director at the Brown School Library for a session on the Danforth Campus.

It's easier to comply with this policy when you start BEFORE you publish!

 

Thanks go to Ruth Lewis for all of the work and information on these pages.
