The University is trying to understand how its central facilities are used and we have been asked to gather additional information about project funding and any publications that have been made possible (in whole or in part) by BEAR Services.
There are a number of ways to acknowledge the use of BEAR and CaStLeS in your research outputs which we have listed below.
Acknowledging BEAR in a publication
Examples of possible wording for inclusion in your publication acknowledgements are listed below:
The computations described in this paper were performed using the University of Birmingham's BlueBEAR HPC service, which provides a High Performance Computing service to the University's research community. See http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/bear for more details.
The computations described in this paper were performed using the University of Birmingham's BEAR Cloud service, which provides flexible resource for intensive computational work to the University's research community. See http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/bear for more details.
Acknowledging CaStLeS in a publication
If you wish to acknowledge the use of CaStLeS resources then please see the section on referencing the use of CaStLeS resource in your publication.
Acknowledging the help of the Research Software Group
If you wish to acknowledge the help of the Research Software Group then please see Acknowledging the RSG.
Associating a publication with a BEAR/CaStLeS project
If you are the PI of a project, it is possible to link each publication with the relevant BEAR/CaStLeS project in our BEAR Identity Database, BEARAdmin (https://bearadmin.bham.ac.uk). If you are a BEAR user, you should be able to login with your University username and associated password (University VPN required if off-campus).
To add a publication or funding information to a project, click on the relevant project code and then at the top of the project page, click on ‘Project re-registration’:
On the project re-registration page that opens up, click on the link to ‘Re-register now’:
You will then be taken to a project re-registration form where you can enter DOI’s for publications as well as information to link funding, such as a Worktribe ID.
Acknowledging BEAR through Pure
Pure (the University of Birmingham's Current Research Information System) is now able to show how much research activity is supported by BEAR Services. You can help to develop this data by adding relations between your outputs, activities, projects, etc. In order to do this you will need to add BEAR as a facility to your research output, see the Pure & BEAR webpage for further advice.
