Microscopy CORE users who publish data either acquired or analyzed using facility equipment or services must include a facility acknowledgment in their publication. Please be sure to notify us of the acknowledgement once your paper has been accepted for publication as this information can aid in the justification of funding for new equipment purchases or expansion of services for the facility. See text below for specific acknowledgements based on specific equipment.

Acknowledgement for Other Equipment

Microscopy and/or image analysis was performed at the Microscopy CORE at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai


Co-authorship on publications for Microscopy CORE staff may be considered appropriate depending on the level of contribution. Contributions that merit authorship include a significant role in planning the studies, writing the manuscript, and other essential roles involving unique skills. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) guidelines recommend that each author have responsibility for at least one component of the work, and that all authors approve the final version. Listing the explicit contributions of each author, as many journals currently require, is indeed a valuable and recommended method for disclosing and clarifying the rationale for the inclusion and order of authors. The contributions of colleagues or collaborators whose participation does not warrant authorship should be acknowledged.*
