How to Cite Us

We recommend the following statement be included in acknowledgements and citations but recognize that modifications to accommodate journal or funding source format may be necessary:

  • "The research reported here was supported by grant U54 GM115516 from the National Institutes of Health for the Northern New England Clinical and Translational Research Network."

In addition, as per NIH policy, investigators funded through the NNE-CTR must assure that final peer-reviewed publications are publicly available through PubMed Central no later than 12 months after official publication date. During this process, be sure to link the publication to the NIH grant number U54 GM115516. The following guide can walk you through this process: How to Get a PMCID (.pdf)

*Any project using NNE-CTR services and/or resources is required to cite the NNE-CTR, regardless of investigator membership status.*
