Guidelines for Title Page and Acknowledgment Section

SNS maintains a list of all papers written by members while at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS). Below are guidelines for acknowledging IAS

Title Page Affiliation Guidelines for Members

On the title page, please list the Institute for Advanced Study as the institution you are affiliated with if the majority of your work on the paper was done at IAS. Note: In some cases you may list two institutions if you also have a "permanent" institution.

If applicable, also include a notation on the title page of your fellowship. e.g. John Doe 1, 2
1. Institute for Advanced Study
2. Hubble Fellow 

Acknowledgment Guidelines for Members

For papers written by members with an outside fellowship or an IAS named fellowship, in the acknowledgment section list the fellowship directly and not IAS. You may have been advised on the wording to acknowledge your specific grant. e.g. "AA acknowledges support provided by NASA through Hubble Fellowship grant HST-HF-01202.01 awarded by the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, In., for NASA, under the contract NAS 5-26555."

If no special wording is provided, you should list the fellowship:
"AA gratefully acknowledges support from NSF Grant PHY-0503584."
"AA gratefully acknowledges support from the Chandra Fellowship."
"AA gratefully acknowledges support from the Taplin Fellowship."

If there is no specific grant (e.g. NS Funds, NS Member, General Endowment, or no funding), a member could use wording like "AA gratefully acknowledges support from the Institute for Advanced Study." Or if there is only one author, then "I" can be used in place of the author's initials. 

Affiliation and Acknowledgment Guidelines for Visitors

While you would include only your permanent institution on the title page, you may wish to include an acknowledgment to IAS in the Acknowledgment section. e.g. "AA gratefully acknowledges support from the Institute for Advanced Study." 

Notify Your Academic Assistant When You Publish a Paper

Please alert the Academic Assistant of your group, when you publish a paper if the majority of the work was done while you are at IAS. Note: This also applies to papers that are published after you leave IAS.
