Why acknowledge us:

  1. Core facility personnel are scientists. When they make a substantial intellectual and/or experimental contribution to a publication they deserve to be acknowledged just as any other co-author.
  2.  The existence of core facilities depends in part on proper acknowledgements in publications. This is an important metric of the value of most core facilities. Proper acknowledgement of core facilities enables them to obtain financial and other support so that they may continue to provide their essential services in the best ways possible. It also helps core personnel to advance in their careers, adding to the overall health of the core facility.

When to acknowledge:

  • Anytime the Louise Pelletier HCF provides services that support your research.
  • If a staff member has made a significant intellectual contribution beyond routine services, please consider co‐authorship

Where to acknowledge:  

  • Papers, Posters, Presentations, Scholarly Reports, Publications and Grants

Format for the acknowledgement:

Example: “We gratefully acknowledge Histology/Imaging/Staining services provided by the Louise Pelletier HCF at the University of Ottawa.”

We request a copy of the publication in PDF format, so that we can keep track of successful research projects that were accomplished using the Core.
