Important notice

PubMed Central Canada to be taken offline in February 2018

On February 23, 2018, PubMed Central Canada (PMC Canada) will be taken offline permanently. 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 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.

As such, no new manuscripts will be accepted by PMC Canada after January 5, 2018. 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, 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 modifications to your manuscript prior to posting. We appreciate your understanding.
