Publication Policies

Use of CTSC resources of any kind comes with several responsibilities as directed by our funding agency, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) at the NIH. In particular:

  1. Please acknowledge the CTSC grant (UL1 TR000457-06) in all publications resulting from research supported in whole OR IN PART by the CTSC. Continued funding of the CTSA program depends upon the NIH's ability to show productivity in the form of scholarly publications.
  2. In accordance with the NIH's Public Access Policy, all journal articles resulting from research supported by the CTSC must be submitted to PubmedCentral. It is important to ensure, at the time the paper is submitted to a journal, that your publishing agreement allows the paper to be posted to PubMed Central.
