Bioinformatics Core Policies on Attribution and Cost Recovery

The Bioinformatics Core at NCV serves an important role in providing bioinformatics support to NCV community and IDeA Network investigators across the state of Nebraska. These services are subsidized by the COBRE core grant. However, in order for this core to be successful, it is critical that investigators provide attribution and cost-recovery where appropriate. Accordingly, the following policies have been implemented.

• All publications or presentations describing studies in which services or software provided by the Bioinformatics Core at NCV were used should contain the following statement of attribution:

Supported by the COBRE Bioinformatics Core, NIH grant number 5P30RP031151-02.

• In cases where the Core Staff contributed to the intellectual development of the project, provided analysis of the data beyond that which would have been otherwise possible for the investigator’s team, or authored any component of the text, additional attribution should be provided in the form of authorship on the resulting manuscript or abstract.
