Citing the CTSC Grant in a Publication

The NIH requires all publications resulting from federally funded research to acknowledge that support in publications and posters and to comply with the NIH Public Access policy, which requires scientist to submit their manuscripts to PubMed Central (PMC).
Failure to comply with NIH Public Access Policy may delay the processing of all grant awards linked to the article. This serious penalty has already delayed millions of dollars of NIH funding across the university system.
To help ensure the success and continued funding of the UC Davis CTSC, please cite our grants.

*Email us when you are ready to submit your manuscript to a journal so that we can provide assistance with all aspects of the compliance process.

When to Cite the Grant

Investigators are required to cite the CTSC grant in all publications that result from any support received from the CTSC, including use of CTSC services (such as biostatistics, biomedical informatics, clinical trials resources, etc.) or resources (such as the CTSC Clinical Research Center) or direct funding (such as pilot grant awards).
Scholars enrolled in the CTSC KL2, CTSC TL1, or MCRTP programs are required to cite the main CTSC grant number, and specific training program grant numbers (for KL2 and TL1) in any publications they author or co-author for projects that were initiated or conducted during the trainee period, regardless of the date of publication.

How to Cite the Grant

For investigators and MCRTP scholars:
"The project described was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health, through grant number UL1 TR001860. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH."

For KL2 scholars:
"The project described was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health, through grant number UL1 TR001860 and linked award KL2 TR001859. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH."

For TL1 scholars:
"The project described was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health, through grant number UL1 TR001860 and linked award TL1 TR001861. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH."

Comply with the NIH Public Access Policy

Manuscripts that fall under NIH Public Access Policy must be uploaded by an author, publisher or a delegate to PubMed Central (not the same as PubMed), depending on the method the publisher has mandated for a given journal
CTSC investigators and scholars who are not familiar with the process are urged to take advantage of the new manuscript deposition service offered by the CTSC by sending an email request.
