Acknowledging the Facility in Publications

Research facilitated by EdinOmics should be acknowledged in research publications


Acknowledging the contribution of our Facility provides a mechanism to demonstrate our success and increase our visibility internally and externally. In turn, this generates additional income to the School of Biological Sciences through external collaborations. It also raises our profile within the UK and internationally, and strengthens our funding applications.

Please routinely note the contributions made by research facilities and staff in all publications.

As a matter of courtesy and for your own benefit, please send a copy of the draft publication to the facility prior to submission. Facility staff can help spot errors in methods or presentation of results, and it provides an opportunity for us to ensure you have acknowledged us correctly.

Please communicate with and acknowledge specific facility staff if they were involved in performing experiments or provided more involved training/advice/work for you. Please make sure you consider co-authorship if their contributions go beyond this.
