The National Children's Study encourages publication and presentation of Study results throughout all stages of Study progress. A Publications Committee oversees the identification and development of “Primary NCS Publications” (publications developed by a Writing Team, assembled by the Publications Committee, and based on analysis of centrally collected data).
A Data Use Agreement must be obtained from the Data Access Team prior to access to restricted use data. Also, all manuscripts and presentations utilizing National Children's Study restricted use data must be submitted to the Data Access Team for disclosure review prior to presentation or publication. Although there is no requirement for a Publications Committee formal review or approval of certain types of Study-related publications (for example, local data from a single former Study Center, formative research projects, or ancillary studies), anyone who received National Children's Study funding or used the Study as a data acquisition platform is expected to include all appropriate acknowledgments and disclaimers and also to notify the Program Office of all peer reviewed Study-related publications at the time of publication. Send an e-mail to NCSPubs@mail.nih.gov ATTN: "Publications Bibliography" with the following information:
- Name(s) of all authors
- Title of the article
- Name of journal or other venue
- The date, volume, and inclusive page numbers of the published article
In this way, a database of National Children's Study-related publications will be available to investigators. A customized search is available through the National Library of Medicine PubMed Search.
