ACKNOWLEDGING THE ROLE OF CMSP IN PUBLISHED WORK

We kindly ask that users of the CMSP consider acknowledging and/or including staff members as co-authors on published work in which the CMSP has played a significant role.  The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) has published recommended guidelines for authorship on manuscripts involving core research facilities, which can help guide users of the CMSP in these decisions.  The ultimate decision on inclusion or acknowledgement is decided by the publication’s senior author and/or PI utilizing CMSP services.  Publication of work supported by the CMSP is essential to demonstrating the value of the facility across diverse projects, as well as professional development of staff members.  As such, we ask all CMSP users to carefully consider the role that the CMSP has played in work submitted for publication.

CITING THE CMSP IN MANUSCRIPTS

For researchers who have utilized the CMSP to generate data and/or interpret results that are a part of the publication, we kindly request you include a statement acknowledging this support:

“We thank the Center for Metabolomics and Proteomics at the University of Minnesota for providing services related to _________________.” [examples could include “generation of quantitative proteomics data”, or “developing and applying quantitative assays for metabolite characterization”]
