Acknowledgement of LRC/LacCore Facilities

By accepting academic user rates you agree to our policy on acknowledgement in, and notification of, publications related to work conducted here.

All lab users should acknowledge the facility in their publications and presentations. Including the facility in your acknowledgements helps to spread the word about our services, and is crucial to the continued funding of the program.

When the results of a LacCore-assisted project are published in journals, book chapters, conference proceedings, or theses, we request that the manuscript includes an acknowledgement similar to the following:

[Cores are archived at / Samples provided by] LacCore (National Lacustrine Core Facility), Department of Earth Sciences, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

In talks, we request an acknowledgement similar to the following:

Assistance provided by LacCore, University of Minnesota.

In addition, when a project is complete, we request that all users provide us with a copy (preferably pdf or other electronic format) of any resulting manuscripts, which we will keep for our records. This, too, is important for the continuation of our facility.

Users are also asked to consider including extensive assistance provided by facility staff in their acknowledgements.


You may download the LacCore logo for use in talks (screen resolution) or posters (scalable PDF).
