ASF encourages fellows to deposit publications in PubMed Central. Autism Science Foundation strongly recommends that awardees deposit journal articles into PubMed Central (PMC) to make them freely available to the community as soon as possible. ASF has adopted the procedures established by the Health Research Alliance (HRA) which has partnered with the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to enable HRA member-funded awardees to deposit their publications into PMC with an embargo no longer than 12 months.  The first step involves linking award information to the awardee profile in the HRA Open system.
