The vision of the ACT project is to create a CTSA federated network to increase accrual to clinical trials.
Publications in which data source partners (hospitals) are to be identified by name will be reviewed for use of name only by each identified hospital prior to submission of a manuscript. At no time will specific participating data source partners be named unless explicitly approved by the data partner. Such approval must be requested and received in writing between the requestor and the Senior Vice President of Research, the Chief Information Officer, or their respective designee. Any entity (e.g., hospital) that does not agree to be identified by name as a data source will be instead identified as a “CTSA-affiliated hospital.”
Publications based on research using the ACT Network should cite the NCATS ACT grant: “This project was supported by the National Institutes of Health through grant UL1TR000005.” and appropriate CTSA Hub grant numbers from participating organizations. It is the responsibility of the ACT Network Site to provide reminders to ACT Network Users and to monitor to ensure appropriate citing of the grant.
Any Intellectual Property derived from use of the ACT Network must cite the NCATS ACT: “This project was supported by the National Institutes of Health through grant UL1TR000005.”
