How to reference the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) North East and North Cumbria (NENC) if we’ve funded your research.

As an NIHR Applied Research Collaboration, we fund a wide range of research projects, as well as research posts.

If we’ve funded your project or we’ve funded (or part-funded) your post, it is a requirement of your funding that you reference the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) North East and North Cumbria (NENC) in your research outputs or whenever you’re sharing information about your work.

What do we mean by a research output?

A research output is any item arising from NIHR-funded research that enters the public domain. Outputs can be written, verbally presented, audio/visual or electronic. The NIHR takes a broad definition of what constitutes a research output. Key examples for reporting research findings are shown below.

  • Publications, e.g. books, book chapter, conference proceedings/conference paper, consultancy report, journal article/review, manuals/guides, monograph, policy briefing report, systematic review
  • Engagement activity based outputs, e.g. talk or presentation; magazine or newsletter (print or online) piece; media interview, press release, press conference or other response to a media enquiry; engagement focused website, blog or social media channel
  • Influence on policy, practice and the public, e.g. training for practitioners, health and care guidelines, policy documents, participant materials
  • Research database and models, e.g. database/collection of data, data analysis techniques, computer model/algorithms, Data handling & control
  • Intellectual property, e.g. Patents, trademarks
  • Products or interventions e.g. therapeutic intervention, preventative intervention, health and social care service design, support tools
