Acknowledgement & Funding of the Center for Advanced Imaging (CAi)

If images or data sets are used in publications that were generated on CAi equipment, the CAi must be mentioned by name in the acknowledgement of these publications. This must be communicated to the CAi. In accordance with the DFG guidelines for Major Research Instrumentation (DFG form 2.18, 01/20), equipment acquired within the framework of DFG funding e.g. a proposal for Major Research Instrumentation, must be mentioned in the publication with the DFG funding number. If members of the CAi team have provided project-specific support in sample preparation, image acquisition and/or image analysis beyond routine, this team member must be considered as a co-author (excerpt of the official CAi User Rules).

To this regard, the appropriate project and grant numbers are listed below, as well as sample text that can be used in manuscripts.
