PubMed Central ID (PMCID) Numbers
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has required since April 7, 2008, that an author's final version of any peer-reviewed journal article resulting from NIH-funded activities be submitted to the PubMed Central repository. PMCID Numbers are part of the mandatory Public Access Law and are required for citation in future NIH grant applications. Lack of compliance with this law may result in a delay of the Notice of Award. Additionally, anyone submitting an application, proposal or report to the NIH must include the PMC reference number (PMCID) when citing applicable papers. Complete information about this requirement can be found in the guidance NIH Public Access Policy.
Note: PMCID is not the same as the PubMed ID (PMID)
Federal law requires applicable clinical trials to register before enrollment of the first participant. This guide will provide instruction and useful websites to insure compliance. Please contact the University’s PRS administrator Susan Sandusky. to initiate the clinical trial registration process or for further assistance.
Publication Notification Form, University of Pittsburgh, School of Health Sciences
Manuscripts must be sent to the Dean of Health Sciences, via the online Publication Notification Form, at the time of submission for publication.
The Pitt community now has access to “DMPTool” as a partner institution. DMPTool was created by the California Digital Library to enable institutions to “create, review and share data management plans that meet institutional and funder requirements.” As a partner institution, the University of Pittsburgh will have the capability to create templates, add boilerplate language for PIs to copy and paste, and/or link to university resources.
The DMPTool can be accessed through the Data Management libguide (top of the right column). Click on the link, select University of Pittsburgh from the dropdown menu, and enter your Pitt computer account information.
The joint ULS/HSLS data management group welcomes your input. Please send comments/suggestions to HSLS librarian Melissa Ratajeski.
