Changes to NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) System


The old NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) System got a facelift in January 2015. NIHMS is used to deposit and approve research manuscripts  funded by NIH and accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008.

In addition to a new, fresh Web page design, NIH is streamlining the manuscript submission process, as well as the login procedures. The homepage now has a graphic overview of the process. Just hover over the steps for more information or links to more details.

When you enter the system, you will find a list of your manuscripts with the status for each. A PI or author must still provide the initial and final approvals steps, but there are updated instructions for each part of the process.

Major changes to the process:

  • NIHMS ID will be assigned only AFTER files are uploaded
  • Deposit process has been streamlined with clear explanations
  • PDF receipt MUST BE opened before going to the next step reports!
  • Funding must be added by the reviewer BEFORE the initial approval

You can still access the NIHMS System through “My Bibliography” when you add a new citation and want to start the submission or compliance work.

Thanks for Another Great Funding to Publication Series


Hilda Alajajian presents “Finding Grant Opportunities: The Search Process”

Mid October represents a lot of things. The leaves are falling. Cooler weather is coming. It also marks the end of another great Funding to Publication series. Funding to Publication is a series of workshops that focus on different aspects of the research process such as tools for finding research, sources of funding, and publication strategies. This year 57 people attended one or more of the workshops, which represents an increase of 42% over last year’s series. In fact, so many people signed up for two workshops (Advanced EndNote and Sources and Databases Beyond PubMed) that we had to add a third day to fit everyone in! Thank you to everyone who attended the workshops and for your help in making it such a great experience for everyone involved. If you missed any part of the series, take a look at its site, http://danaguides.uvm.edu/research2013, for class content and supplemental materials.

Although the Funding to Publication series is over, there are still lots of workshops being offered between now and December. For example, you can learn some new tricks on using images in PowerPoint in the “An Image is Worth a Thousand Words” workshop. Additional topics include EndNote, Google Scholar, The Cochrane Library, and a great session on creating posters. You can find a list of the workshops and when they’ll be offered on the Schedule of Library Workshops page.  How to Stay Up to Date: Alerts, Preparing Posters, and Introduction to Google Scholar are new selections alongside popular standards such as Advanced EndNote and Beyond PubMed.

Don’t see what you’re looking for? Please let us know. We’re always looking for great ideas for future workshops.
