Content for your grant

The University of Minnesota is required by the NIH to ensure an acknowledgment of the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) in any publications that result from UMN CTSI assistance with a project.

When to acknowledge CTSA support

Please note that assistance is not limited to monetary support (e.g., pilot grant funds), but also includes use of CTSI space, consultation with CTSI faculty or staff, and use of any CTSI Internal Service Organization services (Biostatistical support, Informatics support, Biospeciman support, and Regulatory assistance such as IND/IDE support, clinical trial monitoring, or ClinicalTrials.gov support), or tools and software such as StudyFinder, REDCap, and OnCore.

How to acknowledge CTSA support

All publications resulting from the use of CTSI resources are required to credit CTSA by using the following text:

“This research was supported by the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, grant UL1TR002494. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.”

CTSI-Ed KL2 Scholar should use this text:

“This research was supported by the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, grants KL2TR002492 and UL1TR002494. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.”

CTSI-Ed NRSA Training Core trainees should use this text:

“This research was supported by the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, grants TL1R002493 and UL1TR002494. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.”

Complying with the NIH Public Access Policy

The NIH requires that the publications that arise from NIH-funded research be compliant with the mandatory NIH Public Access Policy, including obtaining a PMCID. To ensure your research is publicly available, and to enable us to demonstrate the value of CTSI as a resource for the University of Minnesota, review NIH instructions on obtaining a PMCID and having the full article made available to the public on PubMed Central.

CTSI staff are available to assist you with each step of this process; please contact CTSI at ctsi@umn.edu or 612-626-2318. Additionally, staff in the Bio-Medical Library are on-hand to answer questions about compliance by contacting public-access@umn.edu.

NIH also requires investigators to acknowledge the level of NIH funding (i.e, the percentage and dollar amount of the total project costs financed with federal grant money compared to the total costs financed by nongovernmental sources). You are encouraged to direct researchers to add the level of funding if the journal allows the submitter to indicate the level of funding.

Coordinating public relations activities 

Prior to issuing a press release related to CTSA-supported research, please notify the University of Minnesota's CTSI Communications Manager, Brook Matthiesen, bmatthie@umn.edu, who will notify the NIH award issuing center to coordinate media and publicity.
