PubMed Central is an example of a discipline-based open access journal archive, in this case for biomedical and life sciences journal literature.
Those who have received funding from the NIH are encouraged to deposit their post-prints into PMC.
Step-by-step instructions have been developed for the NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS).
Besides author-submitted articles, PMC also comprises journals that deposit material in PMC on a routine basis and generally make all their published articles available here. The journal list is available.
