The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health”.

The PubMed Central identification (PMCID) is a unique number assigned to a work that is posted to PubMed Central (PMC), a free digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) developed and managed by NIH’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

A PMCID is required for the demonstration of compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy for applicable works, three months post publication and beyond, noted in NIH applications, proposals and progress reports. Anyone submitting an application, proposal or report to the NIH must include the PMCID when citing applicable papers that they author or that arise from their NIH-funded research. Please access for additional information of the NIH Public Access Policy.

PRCTRC is encouraging all researchers to request and be in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. The Evaluation Core (EC) is available to help researchers with the PMCID request process for those publications that acknowledge the PRCTRC.

To better assist you, please submit the following to Mariela Lugo-Picó (

  • Name and email of the author or co-author to be designated as the reviewer to complete NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) approval tasks.
  • Publication information such as title and journal.
  • The final draft of the peer-reviewed manuscript accepted for journal publication (NOT the final published article that contains format and other stylistics aspects copyrighted by the journal). The final draft should include:
