Acknowledging LMCC

The facilities within LMCC are heavily subsided for users from Loughborough University and other academic institutions. However, it is a condition that the centre is acknowledged on all publications that include any data generated in the centre. 

Once your publications have been accepted please send LMCC the details.

How to Acknowledge LMCC

Where the experimental procedure was developed by LMCC staff or they have provided significant scientific input, including interpretation of results, then the staff in question should be included as co-authors and given the opportunity to review prior to submission.

Where LMCC staff have provided assistance (but not enough to justify a co-authorship) the following statement should be included in the acknowledgment section of the academic journal:

"The authors acknowledge use of the facilities and the assistance of NAME OF LMCC STAFF MEMBER(S) in the Loughborough Materials Characterisation Centre."

If all of the work was carried out independently or one or more LMCC staff are co-authors the following statement should be included in the acknowledgment section of the academic journal:

"The authors acknowledge use of facilities within the Loughborough Materials Characterisation Centre.”
