Citing the CCaTS in Publications

Photo showing reminder to cite the CCaTS grant

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires that investigators utilizing the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) cite the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) grant if they:

  • Received funding through CCaTS
  • Used any CCaTS services to support their research

CCaTS relies on these citations as a critical performance measure when reporting annual productivity (publications) to NIH. Please bookmark this site for the NIH-approved citation text to be used in your manuscript.

As a reminder, publications supported by CCaTS must be submitted to PubMed Central and be assigned a PubMed Central ID (PMCID). For instructions, visit the NIH Public Access Policy site on the Mayo intranet (must be logged in to the Mayo network) or view this 12-minute step-by-step video.

Here are four common situations and the appropriate citation language for each:

  • I used CCaTS facilities or services (e.g., the CRU or core labs; CCaTS consultative services such as biostatistics, bioinformatics, volunteer recruitment, etc).
    • Use this citation: This publication [or project] was supported by Grant Number UL1 TR000135 from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.
  • I received training or funding through CCaTS (e.g., Small Grants Program, Novel Methodology Development Award, High-Impact Pilot and Feasibility Award, etc).
    • Use this citation: This publication [or project] was supported by CTSA Grant Number UL1 TR000135 from the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.
  • I am a KL2 Mentored Career Development Program scholar.
    • Use this citation: This publication [or project] was supported by CTSA Grant Number KL2 TR000136 from the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.
  • I am a CCaTS TL1 student (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in Clinical and Translational Science).
    • Use this citation: This publication [or project] was supported by CTSA Grant Number TL1 TR000137 from the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.

Submitting publications to PubMed Central

If your manuscript was created with grant support, the NIH requires you to submit it to PubMed Central for free access. Starting July 1, 2013, the NIH will delay processing award notices for noncompeting renewals if publications arising from the award are not in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. Failure to comply may lead to delays in funding your next noncompeting renewal.
