The PMCID (PubMed Central identifier), also known as the PMC reference number, is a [[bibliographic]] [[identifier]] for the PubMed Central database, much like the [[PMID]] is the bibliographic identifier for the [[PubMed]] database. The two identifiers are distinct however. It consists of "PMC" followed by a [[string (computer science)|string]] of seven numbers. The format is:<ref>{{Cite web|url=https://publicaccess.nih.gov/include-pmcid-citations.htm|title=Include PMCID in Citations {{!}} publicaccess.nih.gov|website=publicaccess.nih.gov|language=en|access-date=2017-07-01}}</ref>

Authors applying for [[NIH]] awards must include the PMCID in their application.
