Home Research Research Resources Acknowledging the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and Shared Resources For Authorship All publications, press releases or other documents that cite results from CCSG-supported research, including the use of CCSG-supported Shared Resources and awarded pilot project funding, must acknowledge the CCSG and maintain compliance with NIH Public Access Policy (see below). Example statements are provided below. NIH citation instructions are found here: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/acknow.htm. CCSG Acknowledgement: “Research reported in this publication was supported by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under award number P30CA062203. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.” Shared Resources Acknowledgement: “The authors wish to acknowledge the support of the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center <SHARED RESOURCE NAME> Shared Resource, supported by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under award number P30CA062203. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.” CFCCC is offering a $250 rebate towards publication costs for manuscripts that are cancer-related and acknowledged CFCCC-supported Shared Resources. Learn more about the program below. Public Access The National Cancer Institute requires all manuscripts accepted for publication that receive direct cost support from the CCSG to be submitted to PubMed Central and be assigned a PubMed Central ID (PMCID). This includes publications that used CCSG-supported Shared Resources, and pilot projects supported by CCSG Developmental Funds. Once obtained, the PMCID must be included at the end of the full citation in applications and reports. Submission and reporting methods vary by journal, so for guidance please see: http://publicaccess.nih.gov/submit_process.htm Publications Rebate Program Given the importance of the CFCCC-supported Shared Resources being duly acknowledged in CFCCC member publications and presentations, the CFCCC is offering a $250 rebate towards publication costs for manuscripts that are cancer-related, are accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal between April 1, 2019 and January 31, 2022, appropriately acknowledge a CFCCC-supported Shared Resource, and cite the Cancer Center Support Grant. Effective Term: April 1, 2019 and January 31, 2022 If a CFCCC-supported Shared Resource has contributed in any way to a publication, poster or presentation, it as well as the Cancer Center Support Grant (P30CA062203) must be acknowledged via authorship or recognition in the ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS or METHODS sections, as appropriate. Acknowledgement text is provided below. Important Note: The extent of the degree to which the criteria described below is met to distinguish an acknowledgement from authorship must be agreed upon by the PI and Research Scientist, preferably as early as possible in the working relationship. Acknowledgement Criteria Basic scientific advice Fee-for-service technical help Minor material support, e.g., cells, antibodies, DNA Basic analysis Boiler plate Methods write-up Co-Authorship Any Shared Resources personnel who have contributed substantially to the experimental design, analysis or writing of a manuscript should be included among the authors. Shared Resource personnel are scientists, and any substantial intellectual or experimental contribution to a publication deserves co-authorship. Charging for services does not preclude authorship. If authorship is anticipated, an agreement is preferably established by the PI and Research Scientist at the beginning of the project to minimize misunderstandings. (See the Association of Biomolecular Research Facilities (ABRF) recommended guidelines for authorship on manuscripts: https://abrf.org/authorship-guidelines.) Co-authorship Criteria Significant contribution to the conception and/or experimental design Expert data analysis Data interpretation Co-writing of manuscript Cut-and-paste Acknowledgement “The authors wish to acknowledge the support of the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center <SHARED RESOURCE NAME> Shared Resource, supported by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under award number P30CA062203. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.” Rebate Process After a manuscript is submitted for publication, the CFCCC member Investigator emails a copy of the preprint and manuscript acceptance to firstname.lastname@example.org with copy to the Shared Resource Faculty Director and the CFCCC Investigator’s departmental financial analyst. CFCCC Administration will review the preprint for (a) cancer relevance, (b) appropriate attribution of the Shared Resource and (c) citation of the Cancer Center Support Grant (P30CA062203). If the three criteria are met, i.e., it is deemed cancer relevant and the Shared Resource is acknowledged appropriately (see ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS AND AUTHORSHIP GUIDELINES FOR CFCCC SHARED RESOURCES) and the CCSG is cited, CFCCC Administration will contact the Financial Analyst and have $250 of the publication costs transferred to CFCCC accounts. Note: If publication costs were charged to a grant that has ended or is otherwise inactive prior to the issuance of the rebate, CFCCC will transfer $250 to the CFCCC Investigator. If the manuscript fails to meet all of the three criteria, the rebate will be denied.
