When should I cite TRI?
Projects, publications, patents, grants, presentations or other outcomes resulting from research supported in whole or part by a Translational Research Institute (TRI) resource or service are required to:
- Acknowledge the TRI by citing the appropriate grant(s).
- Ensure publications are submitted to PubMed Central and assigned a PMCID. Instructions and assistance for obtaining a PMCID are available at the bottom of the page.
- Notify TRI by filling out our Citation Reporting Form.
What constitutes TRI support?
Examples of TRI support include but are not limited to the following:
- Research financed in whole or part by the TRI. This includes funding from TRI’s Pilot Award Program
- Receipt of a KL2 Scholar Award
- Receipt of a Western States Consortium Pilot Award
- Use of electronic health care data and related services, including the Arkansas Clinical Data Repository, Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside (i2b2), Honest Broker System and LifeLink™ Health Claims database
- Informatics or data collection support, including use of UAMS’ Comprehensive Research Informatics Suite
- Consultation regarding research design, biostatistics, ethics, community engagement, etc.
- Guidance or mentorship from TRI personnel
Which award numbers should I use?
When citing TRI related awards, you should cite all award numbers under which you have received TRI’s monetary support. Support is determined by the date of award. Multi-year awards should cite award numbers that correspond with both the initial notice of award date and any subsequent funding years. For example, an awardee who received year one of funding in 2016 and year two in 2017 would need to cite both UL1 TR000039 and U54 TR001629. We also ask that you to cite TRI’s current U grant number (UL1 TR003107 until 6/30/2024). If you have any questions about what constitutes support, when your support started, or which grants you should cite, please contact Robin Liston.
Please use this table to identify which award number(s) you should cite.
