If you utilized the IDDRC resources, please ensure you properly acknowledge the IDDRC’s NIH Grant (P50 HD103525). 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 P50 HD103525 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.

The McDonnell Center for Systems Neurosciences asks to be acknowledged in any publication or presentation resulting from Center funding. Please use the following language in the Acknowledgements section of publications to describe work supported by Center funds:

“This work was supported by funds provided by the McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis.”

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 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.
