Write, Cite, Submit

UB’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is one of more than 60 leading academic health centers in the United States currently receiving Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).

The NIH Public Access Policy requires that that all investigators funded by the NIH submit or have submitted for them to the National Library of Medicine's PubMed Central an electronic version of their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts upon acceptance for publication, to be made publicly available no later than 12 months after the official date of publication. Publications submitted to PubMed Central must include the PMC reference number (PMCID).

All publications that result from the use of University at Buffalo CTSA resources are required by the NIH to cite the CTSA:

  • Clinical Research Office
  • Clinical Research Center
  • IRB review
  • Pilot study funding
  • Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD)
  • Imaging
  • Informatics
  • Tools (TriNetX, REDCap, ResearchMatch, Buffalo Research Registry, Recruitment Toolkit, etc.)
  • CTSI K Scholars
  • Seminars for professional development
  • Clinical Trials Management System (OnCore)
  • Facilities (clinical research labs, data storage)

It is recommended the CTSA be cited if technical assistance, such as statistical or lab assistance, and/or consultations helped accomplish a portion of the research. If the technical expertise played an important role, then citation of the CTSA may be appropriate.

Faculty with partial effort from the CTSA grant should consider whether their CTSA funding provided some support for a research project which would qualify for CTSA grant citation.

Other assistance from CTSI personnel may have been important to the research in question. CTSI faculty and staff are often involved in initiating and supporting collaborative research, coordinating critical meetings of collaborators, and stimulation of novel ideas. These activities should be considered for citation of the CTSA grant.

Anyone using these resources should cite the CTSA and link to the UL1 (or KL2 if applicable).
