How to acknowledge Wellcome's support in your research publications

You must acknowledge Wellcome's support in all your research publications and other outputs. This enables us to monitor and evaluate the outputs of the research we fund.

If you are funded by us, you must list Wellcome and your grant number in all your research publications. This applies even if you're not the corresponding author.

Make sure your acknowledgement:

If you have more than one Wellcome grant, separate each grant number with a comma and space.

If you need to acknowledge more than one funder, separate each one with a semi-colon.

This is in line with Research Information Network's 'Acknowledgement of Funders in Scholarly Journal Articles' guidance.


Single grant

'This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust [grant number].'

'This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust [grant number], [grant number]; Cancer Research UK [grant number]; another funder [grant number]; etc.'
