Groups Acknowledgements Journal Format

Different journals request that acknowledgements be submitted in a particular format. Below is an example for the Journal of Neurology’s criteria. We hope this is helpful:

  • Contributors who do not meet the criteria for Authorship must be listed in the Acknowledgment section that includes each person’s affiliation and contributions.
  • Neurology will not publish links to Web sites listing Coinvestigators or Contributors. The Corresponding Author must supply the information formatted as below and include name, degree(s), and, in parentheses, location and role:
