Citing TARGET in Publications and Presentations
Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatments (TARGET) requests that authors who use data from TARGET acknowledge the appropriate project team(s) in their work by referencing the TARGET dataset in accordance with the Data Use Certification posted at dbGaP. Investigators hoping to collaborate with TARGET members should contact the principal investigator of the disease project team.
We suggest the following language for citations:
"The results published here are in whole or part based upon data generated by the Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatments (https://www.cancer.gov/ccg/research/genome-sequencing/target) initiative, phs000218. The data used for this analysis are available at the Genomic Data Commons (https://portal.gdc.cancer.gov)."
Visit https://gdc.cancer.gov/content/how-do-i-cite-nci-gdc for guidance on citing the data at the Genomic Data Commons.

Researchers who plan to prepare manuscripts containing descriptions of TARGET pediatric cancer data that would be of comparable scope to an initial TARGET disease-specific comprehensive, global analysis publication, and journal editors who receive such manuscripts, are strongly encouraged to coordinate their independent reports with TARGET’s publication schedule. Comparable scope is defined as global genome-wide analysis of TARGET disease-specific data from one or more platforms or an analysis of multiple TARGET diseases.
