CNM Acknowledgment Statements for Publications

Center for Nanoscale Materials Publication Statement & Authorships

CNM staff should be included as co-authors when appropriate and notified in advance for input on the manuscripts. Otherwise, acknowledgments of specific CNM staff, user proposal number, and tools/capabilities used should be included in the acknowledgment section. In the acknowledgement section, it is best practice to list sponsors in order of greatest contribution to least contribution. For instance, if the publication is CNM intellectually-led, it should be listed first in the acknowledgements.

The following acknowledgment statement must be included in all published reports of work conducted at the Center for Nanoscale Materials:

Work performed at the Center for Nanoscale Materials, a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility, was supported by the U.S. DOE, Office of Basic Energy Sciences, under Contract No. DE-AC02-06CH11357.

When work is conducted at the joint CNM/APS X-Ray Scanning Tunnel Microscopy (SX-STM) at Sector 4, Rheo-XPCS at Sector 8, or Hard X-ray Nanoprobe at Sector 26, then use this statement:

Work performed at the Center for Nanoscale Materials and Advanced Photon Source, both U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facilities, was supported by the U.S. DOE, Office of Basic Energy Sciences, under Contract No. DE-AC02-06CH11357.

Press Releases

All press releases referring to work carried out at CNM or any of the other Nanoscale Science Research Centers must include the following information:

The Center for Nanoscale Materials is one of the five DOE Nanoscale Science Research Centers, premier national user facilities for interdisciplinary research at the nanoscale supported by the DOE Office of Science. Together the NSRCs comprise a suite of complementary facilities that provide researchers with state-of-the-art capabilities to fabricate, process, characterize and model nanoscale materials, and constitute the largest infrastructure investment of the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The NSRCs are located at DOE’s Argonne, Brookhaven, Lawrence Berkeley, Oak Ridge, Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories.
