Acknowledging Facilities in Publications
Acknowledging the contribution of our research facilities provides a mechanism to demonstrate their success thus increasing their visibility internally and externally.
Our IGC facilities are critical for providing support to our research. Please routinely note the contributions made by research facilities and staff in all publications following the CMVM Fair Publication Policy:
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 them to ensure you have used the appropriate acknowledgement text.
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.
