Writing Guidelines for NIH Proposals

BibTex, PMCID, and the NIH

NIH requires public disclosure of journal articles supported by NIH funding and all such articles receive a code called the PMCID as part of the PubMed system. As an NIH funded researcher, you MUST include this code every time you cite such a reference, especially in progress reports, proposals, and biosketches.

To support this code in BibTeX, I have created a slightly modified version of one of the most common BibTeX style files (.bst), which is available here.

To use this new style file,

  1. Add a field called "pmcid" to each BibTeX reference that contains the PMCID string, which you can locate by searching for the papers in the PubMed system.
  2. Modify your \bibiographystyle command to look (something) like this:
