Tybaert S. Granting Organization Designations: Addition of Intramural NIST as a Funding Source and NCCAM Name Change. NLM Tech Bull. 2015 May-Jun;(404):e9.

2015 June 10 [posted]

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is adding new intramural funding organizations for the Grant Number (GR) field found in MEDLINE/PubMed records. Intramural funding is associated with articles in which the research is performed by employees of the funding organization. Effective this spring 2015 NLM will begin to carry intramural grant funding information for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Department of Commerce (DOC) when it begins participating in the NIH Author Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS).

This intramural designation will show in the MEDLINE/PubMed citations as:

Intramural NIST DOC
This data can be searched as:

intramural nist doc[gr]


nist [gr]

For more information on intramural funding designation, please see Intramural Funding Designation in the MEDLINE/PubMed Grant Number Field.

On December 17, 2014 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a name change for the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM). Effective December 2014 this Center is now known as the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), please see NIH complementary and integrative health agency gets new name. NLM has revised existing MEDLINE/PubMed citations that carry NCCAM funding designations to reflect the new name, NCCIH. All new grant funding data for this Center will carry the new designation.

NCCIH data can be searched in MEDLINE/PubMed as:

nccih nih hhs [gr]


nccih nih [gr]


nccih [gr]

Please refer to the NLM Web resource page for explanations for both the grant number two-letter codes and agency acronyms.
