Summary of Policy: This policy requires CDC-funded peer-reviewed publications be preserved in a stable archive and made freely available to the public, health care and public health providers, educators, and scientists. These goals are accomplished through 1) information systems to archive CDC-funded documents and provide a searchable interface for public access; and 2) CDC-funded authors uploading final versions of the manuscripts to the public access system. This policy applies to:
All peer-reviewed publications funded by CDC, regardless of the funding mechanism used (e.g., grant, cooperative agreement, contract)
All peer-reviewed publications authored or co-authored by CDC employees.
