- Question: What should I do when the publisher asks me (the author) to delay submission of the manuscript to PubMed Central (perhaps up to "several months"), so that the publisher can edit and and format the manuscript? The publisher says that it will send the final PDF to me so I can deposit that version.


Answer: The NIH Public Access Policy states that authors must deposit their articles immediately upon acceptance for publication, so the author should submit his/her manuscript and not wait for the publisher to send the final PDF version.
