Deposition of published Open Access articles on PubMed

Springer Nature automatically deposits open access articles in PubMed Central (PMC) and Europe PubMed Central (EPMC) on publication under the following conditions:


Conditions

Articles in fully OA journals with full PMC deposition agreement

For authors publishing in our fully OA journals, where the journal has a full PMC deposition agreement we will automatically deposit all articles to PubMed Central. You may check the PMC agreement type in the PMC journal list. 

If the journal does not yet have an agreement, or is out of subject scope, we will deposit articles that acknowledge funding from a PMC partner (e. g. NIH) or EPMC funder, or a funder approved by PubMed Central for deposit in compliance with a public or open access policy. 

To enable us to identify an OA article as eligible for deposit, authors must provide details of the relevant research funder, grant number and recipient name in the structured funding fields provided during the submission process.


Articles in hybrid and Transformative Journals

As of 2019, Open Access articles published in hybrid and transformative journals are eligible to be deposited in PubMed Central if

  • the journal of publication is currently indexed in MEDLINE and is part of a Selective Deposit agreement (as used by many of our hybrid/Transformative Journals)

or if

To enable us to identify an OA article as eligible for deposit, authors must provide details of the relevant research funder, grant number and recipient name in the structured funding fields provided during the submission process.
