NIH Open Access Archiving Mandate
In compliance with the National Institutes of Health Open Access Policy, under the Publisher's standard author publishing agreement, the publisher shall deposit the manuscript to PubMed Central upon acceptance, as long as the author has indicated the NIH (or other relevant) funding and the grant number upon submission. A ﬁnal version of an article may be made publicly available no sooner than 12 months after the ofﬁcial date of online publication.
Articles published online under the FirstView model are considered published, and have a DOI which can be used for citation. No further revisions can be made after FirstView publication of an article. Articles will later be assigned to an appropriate issue by the journal's Editor. Articles may appear in a different order in issues to the order they were published under FirstView.
Changes cannot be made to articles once published, either online in FirstView or as part of an issue. Any changes must be made via the standard process of issuing a correction notice. Please contact the Editorial Office and Content Manager for the journal if any error has been identified. The final decision on whether a correction notice should be published will be taken by the Publisher in consultation with the Editorial Team. For more information please refer to our FAQs.
If a manuscript has only been published as an Accepted Manuscript, you may still make corrections to typographical errors in your proofs in the usual way.
