Co-Authorship Guidelines for DBMR Core Facilities

Staff of the Core Facilities of the Department for BioMedical Research provide essential services for their users. It is therefore important to appreciate their contributions to the scientific advancement of the projects. The most appropriate type of acknowledgement may differ from project to project, and depends on the contribution provided by the Core Facility staff. You find the guidelines for co-authorship for Core Facilities under: Association of Biomolecular Resources Facilities ABRF

Research infrastructure

To enable researchers at the University of Bern and Inselspital to conduct scientific research at the highest level, the University houses several state-of-the-art Core Facilities.
