Publishing results and co authorship
To ensure our existence we need to show that scientists are using NORBRAIN Facility and that our services are reflected in publications. In order to make this visible, NORBRAIN should be acknowledged in publications when you use data acquired at NORBRAIN Facility in your publications. Please use this sentence:
"The xxx was performed at the NORBRAIN Facility, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)".
In addition, the NORBRAIN Facility must be notified when such a manuscript is accepted for publication, so that we can register it in our archive
If highly qualified technical personnel or scientific personnel from NORBRAIN Facility contribute with their scientific knowledge to solve the scientific questions, they should be co-authors when the contribution is sin accordance with the "ICMJE Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals concerning Authorship and Contributorship".
Use of instruments and assisted use of instruments in well known methods and performed by technical staff, is not enough to require co-authorship.
