How to Cite the CTSA Grant
For All Investigators
“The project described was supported by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) through Grant Number UL1 TR001450.”
“The project described was supported by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) through Grant Numbers KL2 TR001452 & UL1 TR001450.”
“The project described was supported by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) through Grant Numbers TL1 TR001451 & UL1 TR001450.”
When is it required that you cite the CTSA grant?
1. For research directly funded by SCTR: pilot projects awards, tech development grants, 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, toolkits, training workshops, courses and seminars, etc.),
- Facilities (Research Nexus space, biospecimens/sample storage),
- Informatics Tools (REDCap, clinical data warehouse, SCresearch.org, etc.)
Please consider citing the CTSA grant for these situations:
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.
