INBRE Bioinformatics Core Policies on Attribution

and Cost Recovery


The K
-
INBRE Bioinformatics Core (KBC) serves an important role in providing
bioinformatics support to I
DeA
N
etwork for
B
iomedical
R
esearch
E
xcellence (INBRE)

investigators

across the s
tate of Kansas
. These services are subsidized by the K
-
INBRE
core grant. However, in order for this core to
be successful, it is critical that investigators
provide attribution and cost
-
recovery where

appropriate. Accordingly, the following
policies hav
e been implemented.




All publications
or
presentations

describing studies in which services or software
provided by the KBC were used should contain the following statement of
attribution:


Supported by the K
-
INBRE Bioinformatics Core
,

NIH grant number P20

RR016475.




In cases where KBC Core Staff contributed to the intellectual development of the
project, provided analysis of the data beyond that which would have been
otherwise possible for the investigator’s team, or authored any component of the
text, add
itional attribution should be provided in the form of authorship on the
resulting manuscript or abstract.




In developing applications for funding in which an investigator knows that KBC
services will play an important role and in which these are
described

in the
application, it is expected that the principal investigator will request support
for
the KBC in one of two forms.

Preferably, the investigator will include
salary
support for
KBC staff at an approp
riate percentage of effort (typically 3
-
5% FTE

depe
nding upon the extent of services
),
to

become active at the time that the grant
is funded. Alternatively, investigators will include in the application funds for
access to core resources and/or fees for
se
rvices on an hourly basis. The actual
charge for
access and services will be

established by the core

and is intended to

provide full cost recovery for
the time
KBC staff
devote to the

project

and for the
proportion of core resources devoted to the project
.
