When to Acknowledge Grant Support

If you have received any of the following types of Center support, please acknowledge the salient grant in your published or presented work.

The PSC library assists authors with all NIH publication reporting requirements.

Acknowledging Grant Support in Papers and Presentations

Publications resulting from NIH funding must include an acknowledgment of NIH grant support and a disclaimer. See the relevant section of the NIH Grants Policy Statement for details.

Examples below suggest how to acknowlege support from the PSC, MiCDA, and Training Grants.

PSC, R24 Center Grant

PSC receives funding for infrastructure services and facilities through the NICHD R24 PRIP program. Publications produced in your role as PSC researcher should cite the NICHD center grant, R24 HD041028, in most cases.

Example 1: This research was supported by an NICHD center grant to the Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan (R24 HD041028).

Example 2: The authors gratefully acknowledge use of the services and facilities of the Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan, funded by NICHD Center Grant R24 HD041028.

MiCDA, P30 Center Grant

PSC receives funding through the National Institute on Aging for the Michigan Center on the Demography and Economics of Aging (MiCDA). Publications that report on work supported by MiCDA funds should cite the MiCDA grant, P30 AG012846, in most cases. Examples include:

1. If you received pilot or network support from MiCDA and those funds were used in the work reported in a publication, include the NIA P30 grant number in your acknowledgments section.

Example: This research (or network) received funding from the Michigan Center on the Demography of Aging at the University of Michigan, which is sponsored by the National Institute on Aging, Centers on the Demography and Economics of Aging (P30 AG012846).

2. If you are a PSC/MiCDA affiliate and you have used the services of PSC staff to directly support your aging research (website design and maintenance; editorial services, etc.), include the NIA P30 grant number in your acknowledgements section.

Example: This research is supported by the NIA research grant R03 AG0xxxxxx and by an NIA center grant to the Michigan Center on the Demography of Aging at the University of Michigan (P30 AG012846).

If you are uncertain of whether to cite the P30, please contact the MiCDA Administrator to discuss your specific situation.

Training, NIA & NICHD Grants

PSC receives training funding through the National Institute on Aging (NIA) for the Training in the Demography and Economics of Aging program (T32 AG000221) and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development for the Social Science Training in Populations Studies program (T32 HD007339). If you are supported as a pre- or post-doc during any part of your research, you should cite the appropriate training grant. Examples include:

NIA Example: This research was supported in part by an NIA training grant to the Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan (T32 AG000221).

NICHD Example: This research was supported in part by an NICHD training grant to the Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan (T32 HD007339)

If you are uncertain of whether to cite the training grant, please contact the Training Program Administrator to discuss your specific situation.
