It is required for NIF to be acknowledged in publications and presentations resulting from access to our instrumentation and expertise.
Acknowledgements are evidence that investments in equipment and people have led to real research outcomes. This helps us to make the case for future investments – both in the next generation of instrumentation, and in the people needed to support user communities working in the facility.
Also, we find papers through online databases by searching for “National Imaging Facility” in the acknowledgements section. If you want to ensure your publications are recognised and promoted, make sure to appropriately acknowledge the facilities that enabled your work.
Acknowledgement is important to the future of research because it tangibly helps sustain world-class imaging capabilities in Australia. Help us to help you!
