Acknowledging

Acknowledging CIC mass spectrometers in publications, proposals, and reports

Researchers that use instruments acquired with National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds must list the NIH grant number in the acknowledgement section of any manuscript that contains data from the instruments, NOT in the supplemental information section.  Yes, the instrument used for mass spectrometry should be named in the supplemental information section if that is where all the experimental details are, but the award number needs to be in the acknownledgement paragraph.  NIH, via PubMed Central (PMC), searches for its award numbers to build the case that their money (tax payer money) is being used very productively to promote research.

All spectra coming from the CIC Mass Spectrometry Facility have the name of the instrument that generated them printed on them. Currently the only mass spectrometers acquired with NIH funds are the Bruker ULTRAFLEX® III and the Thermo Q Exactive™ Plus.

If any mass spectrometry data is used in a manuscript, then one or more of the following sentences may be appropriate:

The purchase of the Thermo Q Exactive™ Plus in 2015 was funded by NIH Award 1S10 OD020022-1 to the Department of Chemistry.

The purchase of the Bruker impact™ II in 2015 was funded by Bender gift to the Department of Chemistry.

The purchase of the Bruker microflex™ LRF in 2015 was funded by the Bender gift to the Department of Chemistry.

The purchase of the Bruker ULTRAFLEX™ III in 2008 was partially funded by NIH NCRR 1S10RR024601-01 Award to the Department of Chemistry.

The Shimadzu GCMS-QP2010S purchased in 2008 was funded by the Department of Chemistry.

The Shimadzu LCMS-2010A was purchased in 2001 with funds from a Keck grant, a Shimadzu grant, and the Department of Chemistry.

The purchase of the Waters LCT® in 2000 was partially funded by NSF Award #CHE-9974839 to the Department of Chemistry.
