The Materials Innovation Platform (MIP) PARADIM is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and this support needs to be acknowledged in any publication that was made possible by work performed at PARADIM Facilities or with provided samples and data.
For papers, in peer-reviewed journals we suggest the following sentence:
“This work was supported by the National Science Foundation (Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, and Discovery of Interface Materials (PARADIM)) under Cooperative Agreement No. DMR-1539918.”
In conference presentations and on posters, listing PARADIM by name only along with your other acknowledgements will suffice. Please feel free to include the Paradim logo where appropriate.
Acknowledgment of use of PARADIM is an important piece to secure continuous funding for this midscale facility. Publications require a statement acknowledging PARADIM (and NSF) support. Staff contributions (above and beyond training) also require recognition and acknowledgment. Thank you for your collaboration!
