How Should I Format an NIH Grant Number in my Publications?

When citing your NIH grant in your research publications, include the activity code (eg., R01), and two-letter institute code (eg., GM) followed by the serial number (including any including any leading zeros), and leave out any separating spaces or dashes.

So, a proper grant number citation would look like this: R01GM987654

Citing the grant number in the correct format improves NIH information resources such as PubMedPubMed Central, and RePORTER. For more information on citing NIH in your research, visit the Communicating and Acknowledging Federal Funding page.
