Acknowledge NH-INBRE

Acknowledge NH-INBRE in your Publications and Presentations

Please acknowledge support from NH-INBRE if you received support as salary for anyone working on your research, received supplies, or used NH-INBRE-provided equipment for your research. Acknowledgements should be included in publications, presentations, press releases and related academic documents. These acknowledgements help justify continued funding of NH-INBRE and are very important to NIH and NIGMS.

The acknowledgement should minimally be “Funding from NH-INBRE, NIH P20GM103506″. Inclusion of the grant number is extremely important because the grant number is what will be searched on for administrative purposes. More elaborate acknowledgement can use this text: ”This work was supported by the New Hampshire IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (NH-INBRE) with an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health: Grant number P20GM103506.” For presentations, download the NH-INBRE logo and IDeA logo on this page and include these on your poster or electronic presentation.

Compliance with NIH Public Access Policy

The NIH public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication. A valid PMCID# reflects successful submission to PubMed Central.

How to Submit Journal Articles to PubMed Central

The NIH Public Access website provides instructions to assist in submitting publications to PubMed Central and complying with the policy: http://publicaccess.nih.gov/.

There are various ways for authors to ensure the paper is submitted to PMC: http://publicaccess.nih.gov/submit_process.htm. The method of submittal is dependent on the journal that is publishing the article. Some journals submit automatically to PMC and some don’t. The NIH publishes a list of the status of various journals. If the journal is listed here: http://publicaccess.nih.gov/submit_process_journals.htm?jtitle=A then the PMCID happens without any other author involvement. If the journal doesn’t automatically submit to PMC, some journals may submit to PMC if the author acknowledges NIH grant support in their article. The author has the responsibility to make sure the paper is submitted to PMC by determining the best method for their journal.

For questions on the above policies contact Steve Fiering, NH-INBRE Program Coordinator at Fiering “at” dartmouth.edu.
