Citing PubMed Central (PMC) ID Numbers  
Effective May 25, 2008, you will need to cite the PMC ID or NIHMS ID numbers for any of your articles that you cite in your progress reports, new applications, and renewals.  
These are only needed for articles accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008, but you may include PMC ID numbers for articles already in PMC as well.  
When your manuscript is submitted to NIH, you will receive a NIHMS ID number, and once it is available in PubMed Central, it will be assigned a PMC ID number.  
When citing an article in NIH applications, proposals, and progress reports, include the PMCID at the end of the full citation. If a PubMed Central reference number is not yet available, include the NIH Manuscript Submission system reference number (NIHMS ID) instead.  
Example  
Varmus H, Klausner R, Zerhouni E, Acharya T, Daar A, Singer P. 2003. PUBLIC HEALTH: Grand Challenges in Global Health. Science 302(5644): 398–399. PMC243493
 
This requirement only applies to articles that fall under the Policy and are authored or co-authored by you or arose from your NIH award.
