The Oregon State University/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Superfund Research Program (OSU SRP) is supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). If your work contributes to this program, please insert P42 ES016465 in the acknowledgement section.

“Research reported in this publication was supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health
Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number P42ES016465. The content is solely
the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National
Institutes of Health.”

NOTE:  All P42-related published articles need to be submitted for open access through the NIH portal.  The final, published versions of NIH-funded articles are supplied to PMC only through publishers who have formal PMC participation agreements. NIH-funded author manuscripts must be submitted through the NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) system. The submission process may be initiated by either an author or a publisher, but must be completed by the author.


Most life science journals automatically submit your paper for open access, creating a PMCID.

Please check the list of journals to see if you journal has an automated service

( If not on the list, you would then need to upload the paper yourself. The submitted paper will then be given a PMCID number.


For non-life-science papers, papers are not generally submitted by the journal so you will need to submit your paper for Open Access.
