I mentioned the funding in the acknowledgements section – why was the article not submitted?

Pre-acceptance, the funding information must be declared via the Peer Review systems ScholarOne and Editorial Manager.

Post-acceptance, the funding information must be declared via our own E-Copyright System and CATS author interface.

Please take every care to match the funding body to the appropriate entry in the provided funder drop-down list. Typing both the full name of the funding agency or the appropriate acronym should narrow your options and help you to select the correct funder. For example, the National Cancer Institute could be found by typing either ‘National Cancer Institute’ or ‘NCI’.

Matching your funder with the correct entry will allow us to help you comply with funding mandates, such as the National Institute of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy.

You can select either the NIH as a funder, or any listed alternative. The NIH is a hierarchy, with the NIH at the top level and the constituent Institutes, Centres and Offices below. Selecting one or more of these will allow us to identify your article as NIH-funded.

See the NIH site for the current list of Institutes, Centres and Offices:
