Acknowledge NERSC

Please acknowledge in your publications the role NERSC facilities played in your research. Also, please alert our communications staff when a paper is accepted or close to publication. They may feature your work in a science story and on the NERSC home page.

A sample acknowledgement:

This research used resources of the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility operated under Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231.

You may use any variation on this theme, calling out specific simulations or portions of the research that used NERSC resources, or even citing the system used.

However, the crucial elements are

  • The spelled out center name (it's okay to include the acronym, too): National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC)
  • U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility
  • Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231

We appreciate your conscientiousness in this matter. Acknowledgement and pre-publication notification helps the center communicate the importance of its role in science to its funding agency, helping to assure the continued availability of this valuable resource.
