REFERENCING AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT We ask that the SSEAU be acknowledged in all publications and communications which result from access to our facilities and expertise. This information is required for reporting to funding bodies and provides a means of measuring our impact and is essential for the SSEAU’s continued support and expansion of its capabilities. We suggest using the the following forms of acknowledgement: The authors acknowledge use of facilities in the Solid State & Elemental Analysis Unit at Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre. The authors acknowledge use of facilities and the assistance of <Name of SSEAU staff member/s> in the Solid State & Elemental Analysis Unit at Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre. AUTHORSHIP The staff of the SSEAU do not automatically assume publication co-authorship for collection of data from your samples. In certain rare circumstances a scientific contribution, eg. a detailed data interpretation for the project and contribution to the manuscript, may justify co-authorship, but this should be discussed with the staff member or the Head of the SSEAU. The university provides clear guidelines around authorship at https://www.gs.unsw.edu.au/policy/documents/researchauthorproc.pdf.
