Depositing in PubMed Central
How to deposit my paper into PMC
If you are funded by MRC, BBSRC, or one of the partners in the Charity Open Access Fund, and you are paying for gold open access, the publisher should send your paper to PubMed Central (PMC) once it is published. However, it has been reported that some are failing to do this. It is therefore the responsibility of the funded author to ensure that the paper meets the requirements of the funder by depositing into PMC. Please note that PMC deposit is only possible where the paper has funding from one or more bodies in EPMC’s list of funders.
