Publication acknowledgements and usage credits


MCN has seen strong growth in the number of publications that have correctly acknowledged the centre, doubling in 2016 to an average of 12 per month.

However, not all MCN-related publications are meeting the requirements of the user agreement. Being correctly acknowledged in publications is essential to the way MCN, ANFF-VIC and ANFF are funded.

This is a reminder that all users are required to correctly acknowledge ANFF facilities in any published research that was assisted by ANFF equipment or expertise.

MCN offers a $200 incentive for use of the correct acknowledgement, which can be applied to usage of MCN capabilities. MCN must be made aware of the acknowledgment within 30 days of the paper being published in order to qualify.

Please include acknowledgements in the following form and report any new publications to the MCN facility manager.

Papers: Please use the following in the acknowledgement section of any papers. “This work was performed in part at the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN) in the Victorian Node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF)”

Presentations: The MCN logo should be included on the acknowledgements slide of a presentation. Alternatively, contact Tom Eddershaw to request an MCN/ANFF-VIC presentation template.
