Do I Need a PMCID?

If you've received resources, services, or funding from Tufts CTSI, and you are publishing your research, your final manuscript(s) should be submitted to PubMed Central via the NIH Manuscript Submission System to receive a PMCID (PubMed Central identification number). This unique identifier is critical for compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy, and allows NIH and Tufts CTSI to keep track of publications resulting from our assistance.
