Citing NIH-NIGMS in projects supported by the Integrative Neuroscience Center of Biomedical Research Excellence
1. Cite the COBRE in the text of your article.
NIH requires that all investigators (faculty, staff or students) who give presentations, posters and/or publish their work on projects funded wholly or in part by Integrative Neuroscience COBRE funds include the following acknowledgment of their work:
"Research reported in this [publication, release] was supported by National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under grant numbers [P30 GM145646 and/or P20 GM103650]."
Use P20 for grant years from before July 2022 and P30 after; funding that spans both terms should use both numbers.
Where appropriate, publications should also include the following disclaimer:
"The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health."
If the grantee plans to issue a press release about research supported by an NIH grant, it should notify the NIH funding component in advance to allow for coordination.
2. After publication, check that it is linked to the grant
Authors need to verify that this has been linked properly on MyNCBI and will show up on PubMed under the grant. Many journals will automatically do this, but it is still your responsibility to fix this problem proactively.
3. How to link your publication to the grant and open access to the public
- Create an NCBI account and link to your eRA Commons account
- Go to the "My Bibliography" section, select "Manage My Bibliography" and add your publication(s) using PubMed, doi, manual upload, etc.
- Once the publication(s) are added, under each select "Add Award" and put in the appropriate grant number (P30 GM145646 or P20 GM103650)
- When your publication is compliant, the text will show in green. Certain open-access journals including journals from publishers on this list should provide this access, but you should make sure this is done in a timely manner. If the warning is red, you should consider manually uploading your manuscript.
- Click "Edit Status" under any red warning and follow the steps to verify public access
- To upload your manuscript, go to the NIHMS manuscripts submission page and follow the instructions.
