Citing eagle-i resources is an easy way to give credit.

The formats suggested below provide the minimum information necessary to identify and credit the resource provider, and are designed to provide a traceable, durable, and unambiguous reference for the resource being cited. These suggestions can and should be used along with those from other resource identifiers (i.e. Antibody Registry ID, Addgene, DSHB, RRID) or from the journal publishing your work.

eagle-i citation

Note that for all types, the names of Core Facilities or other ambiguously named organizations should be followed by the name of the affiliated eagle-i institution in order to disambiguate them (e.g. Flow Cytometry Core. Montana State University vs. Flow Cytometry Core. Dartmouth College).
