About the CTSA Award

CTSA consortium map of U.S.

Working together as a national consortium, approximately 60 Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) institutions have committed to improve human health by streamlining science, transforming training environments and improving the conduct, quality and dissemination of clinical and translational research.

Citing the CTSA grant

By receiving the Clinical and Translational Science Award, the University of Minnesota is now required by the NIH to ensure an acknowledgment of the 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 (Project Management, Clinical Research Coordinators, Nursing and Nutritional Services, Biostatistical support, and Regulatory assistance such as IND/IDE support, clinical trial monitoring, or ClinicalTrials.gov support).

How to acknowledge CTSA support

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

“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.

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.

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.
