Research Performance Progress
Report (RPPR)
• Grantees may access a list of progress reports that are due
using the Status page in eRA Commons, and selecting the Tab
"List of Applications/Grants." The far right column on the
resulting table entitled Action will include an RPPR link if a
progress report is due for a SNAP (Streamlined
Noncompeting Award Process) or Fellowship award.
• SNAP RPPRs are due the 15th of the month preceding the
month in which the budget period ends. Fellowship progress
reports are due two months before the beginning date of the
next budget period.
RPPR Format
• 8 screens, one for each RPPR component

What is My NCBI?
A tool integrated with PubMed to track literature searches,
collections of citations, and public access compliance.
Key features for our discussion:
• Can be linked to eRA Commons accounts
• Commons linked users can associate publications with NIH
• Tracks NIH Public Access compliance
• The only way to enter publications into RPPR
• Creates the publications section (Section E) of PHS 2590s
• Other time savers: Delegation, options to share and
publish bibliographies, automate searches, etc.
The NIH Public Access Policy Is Mandatory
• The Policy implements Division G, Title II, Section 218 of PL
110-161 (Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008) which
Where to Make
The Director of
of Health shall require
Public When to
that all investigators funded by the NIH submit or have
submitted for them to the National
Library of Medicine’s
PubMed Central an electronic version of their final, peerreviewed manuscripts upon acceptance for publication, to be
made publicly available no later than 12 months after the
official date of publication: Provided, That the NIH shall
implement the public access policy in a manner consistent
with copyright law.
NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-08-033
NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-09-071 announces the policy is permanent, per the

2. See list of Publishers at
3. NIH Manuscript submission system (NIHMS)
Before an author signs a publication agreement or similar copyright
transfer agreement, make sure that the agreement allows the final
peer-reviewed manuscript to be submitted to NIH in accordance with
the Public Access Policy.
We encourage authors to consider
• What submission method will be used?
• What version of the paper will be made available on PMC?
• Who will submit the paper?
• When will it be submitted?
• Who will approve the submission?
• When can the paper be made public on PMC?

Delegation in My Bibliography
Preparation is Key to Avoiding Delays in Funding
Encourage your investigators to:
• Use My NCBI now to track public access compliance
• Associate papers with awards today
• Ensure compliance well before their annual reports are due, to
avoid a last minute scramble
• Determine their compliance plan as they write their papers

What do I do if the PubMed Central reference number (PMCID) has not been assigned
yet? A PMCID is usually not available until around the time of publication (see for more information). If using
submission Methods A or B, and it has been more than three months after the official
date of publication, please contact the Public Access help desk. If using submission
Methods C or D, please start or complete the manuscript submission process at the
NIHMS. It usually takes about 6 weeks to generate a PMCID, from start to finish.
My paper has multiple authors and/or is funded from multiple NIH sources. Who
should submit the final peer-reviewed manuscript? Any author may submit the final
peer-reviewed manuscript, but each Principal Investigator and Institution is
responsible for ensuring that the terms and conditions of their award are met. A final
peer-reviewed manuscript need only be submitted once to the NIH Manuscript
Submission system. Authors will be notified during the submission process if they try
to submit a manuscript that has already been submitted.
Papers can be assigned multiple NIH award numbers during submission. They can also
be linked to an award via the eRA Commons when completing an electronic Progress
Report, or listed as arising from any NIH award in writing when submitting an
application, proposal or progress report.
