No author manuscripts will be deleted, and the approximately 2,900 manuscripts authored by Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)-funded researchers currently in the archive will be copied to the National Research Council’s (NRC) Digital Repository over the coming months. These manuscripts along with all other content will also remain publicly searchable on PubMed Central (US) and Europe PubMed Central, meaning such manuscripts will continue to be compliant with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.

Submit a Manuscript

No more manuscripts will be accepted by PMC Canada after January 5, 2018, as the system is prepared to be taken offline. Only authors who already have a PMC Canada account can use the manuscript system. No new PMC Canada accounts will be created.

If you have recently submitted a manuscript to PMC Canada and it is in the queue, staff will work diligently to process it before the system is taken offline so that it can be copied to the NRC Digital Repository. This may mean that you will have less time than usual to make any last-minute modifications to your manuscript prior to posting; we appreciate your understanding.
