Most funders require you to acknowledge your funder when your manuscript is published.
The Research Information Network has developed a standard acknowledgment which is acceptable to all funders. Acknowledgements should follow these guidelines;
- the funding agency name should be written in full
- the grant number should be in square brackets
- multiple grant numbers should be separated by a comma and space
- funding agencies should be separated by a semi-colon.
E.g. 'This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust [grant number], [grant number]; Medical Research Council [grant number] and Cancer Research UK [grant number]
If you have any queries or require guidance then please contact us.
