BLaST is excited to see work published by any of our researchers. However, we need to follow publication guidelines under the NIH.

1) Address Copyright
2) Deposit Paper Upon Acceptance for Publication
- Method A : Publish in a journal that deposits all NIH-funded final published articles in PMC without author involvement.
- Method B : Make arrangements to have a publisher deposit a specific final published article in PMC. See also Information for Publishers.
- Method C : Deposit the final peer-reviewed manuscript in PMC yourself via the NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS) or visit their FAQs to start the process.
- Method D : Complete the submission process for a final peer-reviewed manuscript that the publisher has deposited via the NIHMS.
3) Cite Article
Include the PMC number (PMCID) for applicable papers in BLaST applications, proposals and reports, as described at http://publicaccess.nih.gov/citation_methods.htm. Please see website for further information on Submission options: How Papers get into PMC, or the NIH users guide for any further clarifications. A Step-by-step tutorial process is also available.
