At the end of each year, CEHS reviews member publications and selects innovative and high impact articles to include in our annual report to NIEHS. Note that all selected publications are compliance with the NIH Public Access policy as indicated by their PMCID. Take a look at the section, CEHS Member Featured Publications, below for our complete lists from each year and a short collection of highlighted publications from the current year. University libraries, particularly the Health Sciences Library, offers many research and publishing services. Below are some examples.

Library Resources

Health Sciences Library (HSL) Research Support: HSL librarians and staff have expertise in supporting all phases of the research lifecycle
UNC Health Sciences Library Systematic Review & Scoping Review Request Form
Impact Measurement & Visualization projects: Health Sciences Library impact measurement and visualization (IMV) specialists consult with individual faculty, research groups, institutes, departments or other units
PLOS journals: University Libraries to cover open access fees for Carolina authors in PLOS
SAGE Publishing: Under a novel agreement with SAGE Publishing, part of the subscription fees that the Library will pay for SAGE content beginning in 2020 will cover the costs of open access publishing for a number of UNC-Chapel Hill authors in participating SAGE journals

Acknowledging NIH-Supported Research

We request that researchers acknowledge the CEHS Grant number P30ES010126 in all publications that fit into any of the following cases:

  1. All relevant publications from CEHS Members supported by Center funds;
  2. All publications derived from pilot projects funded by the CEHS;
  3. All publications from CEHS Members and non-member collaborators whenever a CEHS Facility Core resource was utilized, and
  4. All publications from CEHS Members and non-member collaborators whenever the intellectual climate of the Center contributed to the scientific development of the author(s), project, and/or article.

The citation to be included in the publications should be:

“Research reported in this publication was supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under award number P30ES010126 University of North Carolina Center for Environmental Health and Susceptibility. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”

Furthermore, almost all manuscripts citing CEHS, and any other NIH grant, must be compliant with the NIH Public Access Policy, a process that should start once your paper has been accepted for publication; see details in the following link:

We thank you for your compliance with these requirements.
