How to attribute an ARDC project investment

The ARDC project investment recipients are required to attribute the investment in talks, on posters, presentations, brochures and websites.

An ARDC Investment Identifier - a (CrossRef Grant ID) DOI - is required to publicly identify the ARDC’s investment in a project. This identifier will be issued by the ARDC and the project team advised of the DOI as per the Persistent Identifiers for the ARDC Investments policy and procedures.

In line with NCRIS acknowledgement guidelines, the ARDC investment recipients are required to use this identifier in attributing the ARDC investment using the standard text below:

  • The [insert name of] project received investment ([insert project DOI) from the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC). The ARDC is funded by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

Wherever possible, please use the text together with the ARDC and NCRIS logos in presentations and websites of the funded project. Please refer to the ARDC attribution style guide for examples of how to display this visually on posters, presentations, brochures and websites.

Example

The Ecocommons project received investment (https://doi.org/10.XXXX) from Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC). The ARDC is funded by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).
