Acknowledgments and Authorship
There are three basic reasons for the citing of a contributing Shared Resource(s) and/or Research Scientist(s).
- The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires that funds spent from NIH-sponsored grants be accounted for and tracked.
- To best ensure that NIH funding of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth is maintained and continued, any and all utilized Shared Resources and/or Shared Resource personnel must be acknowledged or included as authors.
- Inclusion of deserving Shared Resources Personnel as authors contributes greatly to their success in obtaining R50 NIH grants for salary support.
