Citing the CCTS

Citing the CCTS

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires investigators to cite the CCTS if they
  1. Received funding or
  2. Used any CCTS services to develop/support their research (e.g., the CRU, CHRU or core labs; CCTS consultative services such as biostatistics, bioinformatics, career development planning, etc.)

In addition, publications supported by the CCTS must be submitted to PubMed Central and be assigned a PubMed Central ID (PMCID).  Arrow-Left.jpg

According to NIH grants policy, all grantee publications, including:

  • research publications
  • press releases
  • other publications or documents about research that is funded by NIH

must include a specific acknowledgment of NIH grant support, such as: “Research reported in this [publication/press release] was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under award number UL1TR00165.” 

If the publication, press release, etc.was supported by more than one grant, please reference all relevant grant numbers.  

Are you  KL2 Mentored Career Development Program Scholar or TL1 Pre-doctoral Trainee?   Use the statement above with the appropriate grant award numbers: KL2TR000166 or TL1TR000167. 
The NIH Public Access Policy ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH funded research.  It requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication. 
 
Where can I find information on the NIH manuscript submission process?

Lee Vucovich, LHL liaison to the CCTS, provides assistance in finding and obtaining PMCIDs, submitting manuscripts, and following the approval process. A link to her guide on the PMCID process is found on the LHL site
