Cite Us

Why cite us? What your citation means for our project:

The nanoHUB infrastructure is funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation and provides access to a vast array of resources at no charge to the nanoHUB user community. One of the ways we illustrate impact of our project is through an intensive process of collecting and vetting a list of citations nanoHUB resources and presenting these citations on our site, along with a variety of analytics concerning these citations. nanoHUB is able to demonstrate its significant and growing impact by evaluating the secondary citations of each publication referring to nanoHUB, and computing an h-index for the site.

What this means to you as an author:

Having your publications included in nanoHUB both in our main citations list as well as directly available on the resource page provides more opportunities for people doing similar work to find and cite your papers, increasing your h-index and impact factor. It is also a way to give back to the nanoHUB site and community and increase the visibility of our resources.

Citing a Specific Resource:

If you utilize a particular nanoHUB resource in your research, please cite that resource directly, using the format provided on the resource page under "Cite this work." nanoHUB tools include DOIs for their citation. If you need a paper for a reference, please contact the resource authors and they may be able to provide an appropriate paper to cite. To help us find your publications and include them as part of the collection of works using nanoHUB, please make sure nanoHUB is mentioned somewhere in the text and provide the name of the simulation tool used within the text of the publication.

Citing the website:

If you are referring to nanoHUB in general in a publication, please include a link to the website in your text or references. If you prefer a paper for a general nanoHUB reference, we recommend using one of the following:
