Title: Using EndNote to Format National Institutes of Health Grants Documents
Objective: When the National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy became law on April 7, 2008, there were many changes made to several sections of the NIH grant applications, including the initial funding application, the annual progress reports, and the biosketches. The librarians of the University of Michigan Health Sciences Library saw an opportunity to help our NIH researchers with addressing these changes.
Methods: The NIH public access policy requires that a PubMed Central identification number (PMCID) or a NIH manuscript submission number (NIHMS) be added to the end of a journal citation in grant proposals, progress reports, and the NIH biosketch that may accompany these to show compliance for research that is supported by NIH grant funding. EndNote, the software program from Thomson Reuters, provides its users with tools in the program that address this requirement.
Results: The University of Michigan Medical School has a site license for EndNote, and because this citation package is used by many University of Michigan researchers for their communications with NIH, librarians of the health sciences library developed instruction on using it. These classes have been offered for over a year, and each time, attendance has exceeded the capacity of the computer classroom.
Conclusions: This poster will illustrate the class that the health sciences library librarians have developed using the software EndNote to meet the formatting of documents that is now necessary for the NIH grant process.
