Paper Submission Resources

If you utilized the IDDRC resources, please ensure you properly acknowledge the IDDRC's NIH Grant (U54 HD087011). You can use the following suggested language:

Research reported in this publication was supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute Of Child Health & Human Development of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number U54 HD087011 to the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center at Washington University. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.

All papers must conform to NIH's Open Access Policy, meaning that the paper must be submitted through the NIHMS. Papers that are fully compliant are issued a PMCID number (different from a PubMed ID). Some journals will automatically complete this process for you, but others do not and will require you manually upload the manuscript via NIHMS. WUSM's Becker Library maintains an excellent resource page with instructions and information to understand the process.

When your paper is published, be sure to notify the IDDRC via iddrc@kids.wustl.edu and the Directors of the IDDRC cores you utilized so we can ensure that your important work is counted in the work of the IDDRC.
