Acknowledgments in publications

Your Acknowledgement matters. An acknowledgement in your publication is more than just a nice way to say Thank you.

It helps us to maintain operations. Showing to be part of the scientific community is one of the important measures to maintain funding and investments for core facilities.

It is about people in science too. The core facility personnel may have contributed significantly to your research project. Authorship may also be appropiate.

We ask you to use the following phrase in an acknowledgment section, whenever you got support from a core facility or simply used their instrumentation:

“We thank the [name of the Core Facility and University] in the context of the BUA Alliance Center for Electron Microscopy for support in acquisition (and analysis) of the data.”

If you would like to know more about the background of an acknowledgement for work done by a Core Facility, we recommend the following publication:
