PubMed Central submission checklist

We are glad to help you with PubMed Central submissions.


  • A last-but-one copy of the article - not the final version that the journal will publish but the copy just before that one.
  • The name and, if possible, the ID number for the grant it will be affiliated with
  • A corresponding author who will verify the paper and any in-process changes

How it works

  • Send the last-but-one copy or by using our online form
  • We will post the article to PubMed Central
  • The system will generate a message to the designated author asking for approval (be sure this is someone who will be available)
  • In the case of forthcoming articles the entry will not be complete until a citation linking to the published article can be established.
