How does a publisher submit manuscripts on behalf of authors?
Europe PMC plus accepts manuscripts submitted by publishers on behalf of authors via the Publisher bulk upload pathway. This module was developed to offer publishers a way to use in-house automated processes to organize and transmit multiple manuscript submissions to Europe PMC plus. Manuscripts are submitted to Europe PMC plus via FTP. Arrangements must be made with the Europe PMC Helpdesk to set up an account. An XML metadata file is transmitted with each manuscript bundle.
For complete details regarding submissions via the bulk submission pathway, please refer to the documentation contained in the bulk upload information package.
Publishers who wish to participate in PubMed Central should see the 'How to join PMC guide' at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website.
