Cite & Submit

The success of CTSI is a direct reflection of your research achievements and we need your help to ensure the future of clinical and translational science research at the University of Utah. The CTSI relies on grant acknowledgement as a critical performance measure when reporting annual progress and productivity to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  As an NIH-funded institute, researchers who receive CTSI funding or support, must comply with NIH grant acknowledgement and public access policies.

Cite or Acknowledge CTSI Support

Publications, presentations, posters, or other outcomes resulting from research supported whole or in part by CTSI are required to:

  1. Acknowledge the CTSI by citing the appropriate grant(s). (Instructions below)
  2. Comply with the NIH Public Access Policy by submitting peer-reviewed manuscripts to PubMed Central to receive a PMCID. (Instructions below)

What Constitutes CTSI Support?

Examples of support include the following:

  • Funding for Pilot Project, Career Development (K), or Fellowship (T)
    • Investigators with K or T funding should cite CTSI when the work was done while funded by CTSI, or when downstream products directly benefited from K or T research activities.
  • Services and resources such as (but not limited to):
    • Biostatistics, qualitative method, or study design services
    • Informatics resources, including REDCap and N3C
    • Consulting services in stakeholder and community engagement
    • Grant writing assistance, including attendance at a grant writing event
    • Use of the Clinical Services Core (CSC)
    • Use of the Cellular Translational Research Core (CTRC)

Citation Language

Prior to publication, coordinate with the journal publisher and the correspondence author to ensure the following language is included in the acknowledgement or funding sources section of your article.

“The research reported in this publication was supported (in part or in full) by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number(s) [insert from table below]. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”

Which Award Numbers Should I Use?

Use all award numbers under which you received support. Support is determined by the year(s) of an award or when CTSI services or resources were utilized. If you have any questions about what constitutes support, when your support started, or which awards you should cite, please contact Jennifer Zitterkoph.

Use these tables to identify which award number(s) you should use:

NIH Public Access Policy

All peer-reviewed manuscripts resulting from CTSI funding or the use of CTSI resources or services must be compliant with the NIH Public Access Policy. This policy requires that researchers submit the final peer-reviewed manuscripts upon acceptance for publication via the NIH Manuscript Submission System to receive a PubMed Central ID (PMCID). Please note: PMCID is NOT the same as a PubMed ID (PMID).

The author who received CTSI support is responsible for ensuring this process is completed even if this not the lead author. Some journals automatically submit articles to receive a PMCID, others will submit upon request and usually for a fee, and others require an author to submit. Use the NIH identification wizard to find journals that submit automatically or upon request.

When working with a journal:

  1. Notify them that the article is supported by NIH funds.
  2. Provide the award citation language for their acknowledgment or funding sources section.
  3. Determine whether they will submit to PubMed Central automatically or for a fee.
  4. Clarify what the journal includes with "open access" because open access does not equal compliance with the Public Access policy - only submitting to PubMed Central and receiving a PMCID meets compliance.
  5. If an author will be submitting the final peer-reviewed manuscript to PubMed Central, ensure the copyright agreement allows for this. 

Basic steps for uploading a manuscript to NIH Manuscript System

  • Use NCBI MyBibliography to track compliance and to initiate submission to the NIH Manuscript System. 
  • Access the system at this link (use the ERA Commons login option or the “more login options” link in the yellow “attention” bar at the top of the page).
  • Click on the “Submit New Manuscript” button.
  • Select "Populate From PubMed" and enter the PubMed ID number. 
  • Select "Search Funding" to link the article to the CTSI funding grant. Search for the UL1 or KL2 or TL1 grant number the article is supported by (see table above).
  • Upload the final peer-reviewed manuscript and any tables, figures, and supplements if they are separate from the manuscript. 
    • Journals maintain copyrights to the published article so a PDF of the published article should not be submitted unless the author has the rights to do so. If an article was published as open access, the author may be able to submit the PDF of the published article - confirm with the journal before doing so.
  • Indicate the release delay (embargo) period as 12 months.
  • Indicate yourself as the reviewer.
  • After uploading into NIHMS watch for two emails, one for initial review and one for final approval as the manuscript works its way through the system. If you do not receive the first email within 30 days, log into NIHMS and look for the manuscript under the "In Process" tab.
  • The system will generate an NIHMS ID number as it works its way through the system and then a PMCID ID will be assigned after the reviewer provides final approval.
  • The article will be available to read in PubMed Central after the embargo period.
