NIH-funded authors and Cellular Microbiology
From April 2008, the NIH is mandating grantees to deposit their accepted manuscripts in PubMed Central, to be made publicly available within 12 months of publication (http://publicaccess.nih.gov/FAQ.htm#general).

The NIH mandate applies to all articles based on research that has been wholly or partially funded by the NIH and that are accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008. For papers accepted for publication in Cellular Microbiology after this date Wiley-Blackwell will post the accepted version of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central upon acceptance by the journal. This accepted version will be made publicly available in PubMed Central 12 months after publication.

If authors wish to make their final published article openly accessible and without embargo, they can choose to publish via the OnlineOpen service (http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/static/onlineopen.asp).
