Proposal and publication

Biodesign Imaging Facility

Acknowledgment Guidelines

Core Facilities: If research submitted for publication makes use of a facility or service, we ask that you recognize the facility in the ‘Acknowledgements’ section of the manuscript.

Core Equipment: In some cases, equipment acquired by a grant must be listed in the ‘Materials and Methods’ section including the specific instrument grant award number. 

Core Personnel: If an individual has provided support through advanced training, sample preparation or guidance in data acquisition or analysis, please recognize this individual in the acknowledgement section of the manuscript, as well as the core.  If an individual is asked to make a significant intellectual contribution to research submitted for publication, please discuss co-authorship with that individual when engaging them in the research project.

Linking Publications and Grants in your My NCBI

Any publication that utilizes a core facility instrument obtained through an NIH grant must be linked in My NCBI. All researchers who are co-authors on a paper, and who have an NCBI account, are required to link to the equipment grant.  This can be easily done by logging into your My NCBI account, go to your My Bibliography, and on the right is a column that provides the option to 'Add Award.' The award numbers for NIH funded equipment can be found below for the ALMC instruments, or they are also posted next to the instruments within the lab.
