Cite the CTSA grant and submit it to PubMed.

Why is citing the CTSA grant so important?

Investigators are required to acknowledge federal funding on research publications, press releases, requests for proposals, bid invitations, and other documents supported in whole or in part with NIH funds. Authors are required to comply with the NIH Public Access Policy, which includes submission, upon acceptance for publication, of an electronic version of the final, peer-reviewed manuscript to PubMed Central.

SCTR’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) provides essential infrastructure, resources, and services that support clinical and translational research at MUSC and across South Carolina. Publications are key to showing Congress, the NIH, and our partners that SCTR is effective at facilitating translational research. Help SCTR to continue to provide essential support for clinical and translational research by using our citation guidelines to credit the CTSA grant.

Citation Guidance

When are you required to cite the CTSA grant?

  1. For research directly funded by SCTR: pilot projects awards (e.g., discovery, high-innovation high-reward, team science, etc.), Community-Engaged Scholar awards, Research Nexus subsidy awards, KL2 & TL1 support.
  2. Faculty or staff funded by SCTR where their research benefited from salary support.
  3. For research utilizing any SCTR services, resources, facilities, tools or consults, such as:
  • Services (SUCCESS Center, research navigation, biostatistics, informatics, regulatory support, recruitment/marketing, Research Nexus & Lab, RCM study coordination, technology consults (ROI, TACHL), study design, community engagement and special populations consults, etc.)
  • Resources (biospecimens/biorepository, toolkits, training workshops, courses and seminars, etc.),
  • Facilities (Research Nexus space, biospecimens/sample storage),
  • Informatics Tools (REDCap, clinical data warehouse, SCresearch.org, etc.)

Additional situations when citing the CTSA grant would be appropriate:

  1. When CTSA involvement is less direct, the decision to cite the CTSA grant is at the discretion of the author(s). Given the importance of publications to demonstrating the effectiveness of SCTR to facilitate translational research, we ask that you consider citing the CTSA.
  2. SCTR involvement that qualifies for citing the CTSA:
  • Any technical assistance or navigation provided by SCTR, which includes scientific retreat support and training sessions (e.g., Lunch-n-Learns, workshops)
  • Faculty with partial FTE from the CTSA grant should consider whether their CTSA funding provided some support for a research project which would qualify for CTSA grant citation.
