Grant Citation


Future funding requires we document our impact. Therefore, it’s critically important that you cite the grant when appropriate:

  • Your work was conceived or carried out as part of a CMCI or IMCI Working Group.
  • The research is funded by a CMCI or IMCI Project Grant, Pilot Grant or MAG.
  • You used major equipment purchased by the grant and/or resources provided by CMCI/IMCI.
  • One or more authors is funded entirely by the CMCI grant.
  • One or more authors is funded partially by the CMCI grant specifically for this work.
  • Authors do not have funding specifically for this work and the manuscript is closely related to the CMCI grant.

Please use this exact text for grant citation:

Research reported in this publication was supported by the National Institute Of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number P20GM104420. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.

Publication Expectations

It is the author’s responsibility to ensure your manuscript is compliant with the NIH public access policy by obtaining a PCM ID. Until you have a PMC ID number, your article is NOT fully compliant.”


  1. Follow this NIH public access policy link
  2. Select, “Yes, show me how to make my paper compliant and report it to NIH.”
  3. Search for the publication journal. If it is included in the list, you may use Submission Method A. If it is not included, answer the questions provided and follow the associated links to determine which submission method can be used.
  4. Follow the directions through to completion. You will know the process is complete when you have a PMC ID.

If you are using Submission Method C or D, you will be submitting papers directly into the NIH Manuscript Submission system (NIHMS). The following tips will help.


Your publication is not compliant (complete) until you have a PCM ID. And obtaining a PCM ID is the author’s responsibility.


  • Choose the eRA Commons log in option for an NIH Researcher
  • Once you initiate the process, there will be multiple times that you will be required to respond to an email to approve the publication
  • The publication submission won’t be complete until you have fully approved and the article receives an NIHMS ID.  Eventually the publication will receive a PMC ID, until then your publication is in process.
