Tybaert S. New Europe PMC Grant Funding Organization Added. NLM Tech Bull. 2016 Jul-Aug;(411):e3.

2016 August 01 [posted]

Effective August 2016, the Manuscript Submission System for Europe PMC (also known as Europe PMC plus) is adding a new grant funding organization. The new granting agency may appear on records for manuscripts that designate its financial support.

The new agency is:
Academy of Medical Sciences

PubMed Display

The grant number information format in the PubMed abstract display will be:
grant number/organization name/country name
For example:
Grant Support
SGL001/0001/Academy of Medical Sciences/United Kingdom

Searching Grant Numbers

Search for Europe PMC grant information in the following ways:

  • Grant number to retrieve citations with a specific grant:
    • sgl001/0001 [gr]
  • Full organization name or pieces of the name to retrieve citations with grants from a specific granting organization:
    • academy of medical sciences [gr]
  • Country name to retrieve all citations with grants for granting organizations from a specific country:
    • united kingdom [gr]

Comprehensive searching for a grant number can be complicated because the information is not always reported in a standardized format. It is best to include the country name or the organization in the search to be sure that the results are for the correct organization of interest, especially if searching only on a grant number string.

The NLM Web resource page, Grant Number Information Found in the GR Field in MEDLINE/PubMed has been updated with this new non-US funding organizations.
