Attribution of NIH/NIGMS Support

We need your help in raising awareness of NIH's role in supporting research advances made by grant recipients. Greater recognition of this role will enhance the American public's appreciation of the scope and impact of NIH support. By taking the actions described below, you will also be responding to a Congressional directive that grantees "acknowledge NIH's funding contribution when they publicize their research findings."

  • Acknowledge NIH/NIGMS' full or partial support of your research in journal articles, oral or poster presentations, news releases, interviews with reporters and other communications. The citation in scientific publications should use the following format:

    Research reported in this publication was supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under award number R01GM085232.

    If the research received funding through the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) program, see Attribution of IDeA Support.

    If the research received funding through the Recovery Act, see Acknowledging Recovery Act Support.

    If you have more than one grant, only cite the one(s) that supported the research described in the article or presentation.

  • If you wish to acknowledge NIH/NIGMS funding on your Web site or other communication product, you may use wording such as:

    Funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health

    or

    Funded by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health

    However, you may not use the new NIH or NIGMS logo to acknowledge funding, as these logos are only to be used for material produced by NIH and its components.
