In the fall of 2017, the Manuscript Submission System for Europe PMC (also known as Europe PMC plus) will add a new grant funding organization from India. The new agency may appear on records for manuscripts that designate financial support.

The new agency is:
Wellcome Trust-DBT India Alliance

PubMed Display

The grant number information format in the PubMed abstract display will be:
grant number/organization name/country name
For example:
Grant Support
IA/M/12/1/500261/Wellcome Trust-DBT India Alliance/India
IA/CPHE/14/1/501498/Wellcome Trust-DBT India Alliance/India

Searching Grant Numbers

Search for Europe PMC grant information in the following ways:

  • Grant number to retrieve citations in a specific grant:
    • IA/M/12/1/500261 [gr]
  • Full organization name or pieces of the name to retrieve citations from a specific organization:
    • Wellcome Trust-DBT India Alliance [gr]
  • Country name to retrieve all citations with grants for granting organizations from a specific country:
    • india [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.
