ASHA Journals Knowledge Base

Am I required to opt into Open Access publishing if my research was funded by NIH?

Open access is not required for articles based on research funded by NIH. The article will be made free as public access on PubMed Central after a 6-month embargo period. Open access offers the benefit of the author retaining copyright, and free access for all users on the ASHAWire site, including all of its enhancements over the PubMed version.
