Citing the CCTS

The NIH requires all publications resulting from federally funded research to have a PubMed Central reference number (PMCID). This citation is critical for our NIH-funded CTSA. All publications that have been supported by the University of Utah CCTS should be uploaded into PubMed Central.

Support can be in many forms: pilot funding, infrastructure/space, and services (e.g., clinical support services, Cellular Translational Research Core, study design and biostatistical consultation, community-engaged research support, etc.). Please ensure that you are citing the CCTS for applicable research publications and that you have submitted all publications into PubMed Central.

As we prepare for our CCTS Annual Progress report submissions, we will be running reports for all CCTS-cited publications. The national CTSA Program also relies on these citations as a critical performance measure when reporting productivity to NIH and U.S. Congressional representatives.

Example of Citations

I used CTSA facilities or services (e.g., the CSC or CTRC laboratory; biostatistics, biomedical informatics, volunteer recruitment, etc.). “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 UL1TR001067. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”

I received training or funding through the CTSA (e.g., master’s degree or certificate program; Pilot Award Program, etc.). “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 UL1TR001067. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”

I am a CCTS KL2 Mentored Career Development Program scholar. “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 KL2TR001065. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”

I am a CCTS TL1 – Training in Human Genome Analysis Program trainee. “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 TL1TR001066. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”
