The journal that published my work routinely deposits its articles in PubMed Central. Do I have to submit my article myself?

It depends on which version of the article the journal is depositing—the final published article or the final peer reviewed manuscript—and on the terms of any agreement that the journal may have with NIH. There are three possible cases, described below. In the first case you do not have to take any action. In the other two, you do have to take certain actions. (a) Journal deposits final published article and makes it available within 12 months: If your journal deposits the final published article in PubMed Central and allows NIH to make it available to the public within 12 months of publication, you do not have to do anything to fulfill the submission requirement of the NIH Public Access Policy. (b) Journal deposits final published article but does not make it available within 12 months: If the journal deposits the final published article in PubMed Central, but delays its release to the public for more than 12 months after publication, you will have to deposit a copy of your manuscript
