Q&A: What should a researcher do when the grant number doesn't appear in the the NIHMS submission process?

Q: I had two questions today from PIs who were submitting manuscripts to PubMed
Central via NIHMS.

Both said that the grants that supported their work were not auto-filled in the "grants" field in the NIHMS. In both cases, the projects have been funded for years and years. How should they handle this? Simply enter the numbers and have NIH match them with the right grant or contact NIHMS to determine the right grant number? Or is there something else they should do?

A: They should do a search on the number or their name. If they cannot find the grants this way, they should write to the NIHMS Help Desk with the grant/contract numbers, the title, the awardee, and the issuing institute so we can research them.

To contact the NIHMS Help Desk, go to http://www.nihms.nih.gov/, scroll to the bottom and select the Contact the Help Desk link.
