The source of any financial support received for the work being published must be indicated in the Acknowledgments section. (It will be assumed that the absence of such an acknowledgment is a statement by the authors that no support was received.). The sentence should begin: ‘This work was supported by …’
The full official funding agency name should be given, i.e. ‘National Institutes of Health’, not ‘NIH’. Grant numbers should be given in brackets as follows: ‘[grant number 0123]’. Multiple grant numbers should be separated by a comma as follows: ‘[grant numbers 0123, D421]’. Agencies should be separated by a semi-colon (plus ‘and’ before the last funding agency). Where individuals need to be specified for certain sources of funding the following text should be added after the relevant agency or grant number ‘to [author initials]‘.
An example is given here: ‘This work was supported by the National Cancer Institute [AB1234 to C.B., CC11223 to H.H.]; and the National Institutes of Health [hfhf223344].
Recognition of personal assistance should be given as a separate paragraph, as should any statements disclaiming endorsement or approval of the views reflected in the paper or of a product mentioned therein.
