Public Access Submission System (PASS)
In partnership with Harvard and MIT with inspiration from Jeff Spies at 221B, the DRCC developed PASS to support Johns Hopkins University’s Open Access Policy. Researchers can use PASS to simultaneously submit their articles to PubMedCentral (and eventually other federal funder repositories) and institutional repositories such as JHU’s JScholarship. This simultaneous submission of articles supports both federal funder public access policies and institutional open access policies. PASS also provides useful grants and article information through dashboards that harvest and present data from JHU’s COEUS grants system and NIH’s Public Access Compliance Monitor (PACM). The roadmap for PASS includes the integration of the JHU Data Archive so that researchers will be able to submit articles and data cited within those articles.
