Citations & Acknowledgements

Proper acknowledgement of computational resources and HPC staff support in research at Auburn University is critical in soliciting HPC funding. Although metrics, such as the number of jobs ran, cluster utilization and proc-hrs used, indicate that HPC resources are in demand, acknowledgement in research publications is the primary means of proving that Auburn University’s HPC resources are actually in line with the institution’s goal of becoming a world-class research university and worthy of additional support and funding.
