A complete list of PubMed Central (PMC) deposit options for publishers is available on the PMC Website.

Publishers that want to deposit papers in PMC via NIHMS using a Publisher Account must adequately address a few questions before an account can be issued. Alternatively, a publisher may set up a generic My NCBI account. For details, see How does a publisher submit manuscripts to NIHMS on behalf of authors?

NIHMS deposit on an author’s behalf is a voluntary service that some publishers provide; there are no formal agreements made between NIHMS and publishers that require publisher deposit or prevent the author from initiating their own submission.
