The National Institutes of Health (NIH) require acknowledgement of the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) grant number that provided support to current and future publications. This is a critical productivity metric for all CTSAs including the University of Kentucky Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS). Through the annual progress reporting process, NIH captures publication citations electronically.
How to cite the CTSA grant:
For CCTS funding, services, resources, facilities, tools, equipment, etc., cite: UL1TR000117
This grant number should be used in the acknowledgements or Grant support section of manuscripts. If associated language is needed, the following sentences can be inserted:
"The project described was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health, through grant number UL1TR000117. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.”
KL2 Scholars cite: KL2TR000116
"The project described was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health, through grant number KL2TR000116. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.”
TL1 Trainees cite: TL1TR000115
"The project described was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health, through grant number TL1TR000115. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.”
When is it required that you cite the CTSA grant?
For research directly funded by the CCTS: CCTS pilot awards, CCTS seed grants, KL2/TL1
support, CCTS subsidized research projects and protocols;
Any faculty or staff funded by the CCTS/CTSA where the research directly benefited from this
For research utilizing any CCTS services, resources, facilities, tools or equipment, such as:
- Services (research concierge/Elodie, biostatistics, informatics , data extractions, regulatory support, recruitment/marketing, nursing, study coordination, labs, etc.)
- Resources (consultations, training workshops, courses and seminars, etc.),
- Facilities (outpatient/inpatient rooms, data storage, biospecimens/sample storage),
- Informatics Tools (REDCap, i2b2, ResearchMatch, etc.)
- Equipment supported by the CTSA in the Center for Pharmaceutical Research and Innovation, MRISC, CSC Body Composition Core (iDXA, metabolic cart, strength testing equipment).
FAQs when considering citing the CTSA grant:
What if there is some form of CTSA involvement, but the involvement is less direct?
When CTSA involvement is less direct, the decision to cite the CTSA grant in papers is at the discretion of the senior author. Given the importance of publications to demonstrating the transformative power of the CCTS, we ask that you consider citing the CTSA.
What kinds of CCTS involvement would qualify for citing the CTSA?
- Technical assistance, such as statistical or lab assistance, was involved to accomplish a portion of the research, but the personnel were only partially funded by the CTSA. If the technical expertise played an important role, then citation of the CTSA may be appropriate.
- Faculty with partial FTE from the CTSA grant should consider whether their CTSA funding provided some support for a research project, albeit indirect, which would qualify for CTSA grant citation.
- Other assistance from CCTS personnel may have been important to the research in question. CCTS faculty and staff are often involved with initiating and supporting collaborative research, coordinating critical meetings of collaborators, and stimulation of novel ideas. These activities should be considered for citation of the CTSA grant.
NIH Public Access Policy: The NIH requires submission of all peer-reviewed publications supported by NIH resources to PubMed Central. Compliance with this policy is mandatory: NIH will not acknowledge any publications not in compliance with this policy and may withhold funding on grants not in compliance. Compliance is monitored via a PubMed Central ID (PMCID), which must be included in bibliography listings of these publications.
