Grant support for research that resulted in the paper must be cited, following journal format for doing so. Based on description above, the new grant could not be construed as supporting research that resulted in paper in final stages before publication.


My understanding is that one should acknowledge the grant / funding body if one did substantive work during the grant period (which may include initial research, conferences, talks, but also substantive editing and revision). But if you have multiple successive grants as you work on multiple things (fairly common European postdoc experience), you probably have some degree of freedom in deciding who to acknowledge in which papers.

I would add it if the grant helped in any way, including small ways. (I sometimes use grants to hire students to help with copy-editing, for example.)

I don't see any downside to erring on the side of acknowledging in such cases.
