All published work resulting from use of this facility must carry the following acknowledgment, regardless of whether Foundry staff are included as authors:
Work at the Molecular Foundry was supported by the Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences, of the U.S. Department of Energy under Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231.
Please be aware that proper acknowledgement of Foundry resources is crucial to our continued support.
As per all user agreements, all user project results of sufficient scientific merit will be prepared for publication and submitted to a journal. Any Foundry scientist who made significant contributions should be included as an author and will expect to review the paper before its submission to a journal.
The mission of the Molecular Foundry is to facilitate and amplify the impact of user research. Authorship of research publications associated with this work should follow scientific publishing norms. Any Foundry scientist who made scientific and/or significant contributions to a body of work should be included as an author, and will expect to review the paper before its submission to a journal. We encourage users to initiate discussions about authorship with Foundry staff upon activation of their user project. The Foundry recommends an inclusive approach to authorship, recognizing that scientific contributions can be difficult to define. Production and/or the help in production of data, text, or code themselves are not the only metrics for inclusion. Those who have constructively participated in discussions and tried out approaches are also to be considered as co-authors. In the case of disagreements on co-authorship, we recommend to first discuss and reconcile it with the lead author and lead PI. If this route is unsuccessful the Foundry can help to find a productive and mutually agreeable path forward. Please contact the User Program Office for support.
