Common Questions

How Do I Acknowledge the UTHSC Institutional Core Facilities in My Publications?

In general, the authors should name the specific institutional research core facility used in the scope of the research, and clearly state how the core contributed to the research.* For example, “All flow cytometry and flow sorting data were generated in the Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting core (FCCS) at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center with the assistance of Dr. Tony Marion and Dr. Terry-Ann Milford.”


*For all users of the Molecular Resource Center (MRC): Since the MRC is supported by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission as a Center of Excellence, acknowledgements should be written in this format: “All next-generation sequencing data were generated in the Molecular Resource Center of Excellence at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center with the assistance of Dr. William Taylor and Dr. Lorne Rose.”

When Should Core Directors, or Core Staff, Be Included as Authors on Abstracts/Publications?
It is important to recognize that institutional research core lab personnel provide critical services to our community and that they offer a breadth of expertise in technologies and services that drive research progress. The UTHSC Office of Research suggests that core users review the authorship guidelines drafted by the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) organization.
