  1. Acknowledge CAM in any publications or conference paper for which images, data, staff knowledge or input has been obtained from CAM and/or the CTLab. The followng acknowledgment may be used: The authors acknowledge the instruments and expertise of Microscopy Australia at the Centre for Advanced Microscopy, Australian National University, a facility enabled by NCRIS and university support
  2. Lodge copies of your publications with CAM reception.

When you acknowledge CAM in your publications, you’re helping us to build a case for future funding and equipment renewal. This also assists us in continuing to provide access at subsidised prices.
