How to Acknowledge Research Computing


Help us ensure continued support from internal and external resources, such as NSF and others, for future HPC systems by helping us to identify R2 and/or Borah and Research Computing personnel-supported scientific results. You can do this through citation, acknowledgment, and/or by submitting an accomplishment statement directly to Information about each of these options is detailed below.

We prefer that you cite your use of the R2 or Borah systems with the following citation format modified as needed to conform with citation style guidelines. Be sure to use the digital object identifiers (DOIs) as shown; they are unique to R2 and Borah.


For Borah
  • [1] Boise State’s Research Computing Department. 2020. Borah: Dell HPC (High Performance Computing Cluster). Boise, ID: Boise State University. DOI: 10.18122/oit/3/boisestate
For R2
  • [1] Boise State’s Research Computing Department. 2017. R2: Dell HPC Intel E5v4 (High Performance Computing Cluster). Boise, ID: Boise State University. DOI: 10.18122/B2S41H.


Acknowledgments are more difficult to track electronically because of the many possible variations, but you may choose to acknowledge support from Boise State’s Research Computing Department if the citation method described above is inappropriate. You may modify the following example as appropriate; however, please include at least the DOI in the acknowledgment text, as you would include funding agency award numbers.

  • We would like to acknowledge high-performance computing support of the Borah compute cluster (DOI: 10.18122/oit/3/boisestate) provided by Boise State University’s Research Computing Department.
  • We would like to acknowledge high-performance computing support of the R2 compute cluster (DOI: 10.18122/B2S41H) provided by Boise State University’s Research Computing Department.

If any Research Computing staff member(s) assisted with the work in any way, please consider acknowledging their support in your publication. If you’d like to consider including a Research Computing staff member as a co-author on your publication, the following may help as guidelines for making that decision:

  • The staff member contributed significantly to the writing of the publication, data collection, data analysis, and/or grants funds were used to support Research Computing personnel activities
  • The publication or its results include a substantial amount of text about the work that the staff member contributed to (for example, if that staff member did a substantial amount of development and/or optimization of software)

If it’s decided that it’s appropriate to include the RC staff member should as a co-author on that publication, then author order can be negotiated among all the co-authors.

Accomplishment Statement

Upon completion of your project, we request that you provide a brief accomplishment statement that contains the following:

  • (a) the research results obtained using Boise State Research Computing resources,
  • (b) a list of scientific publications that resulted from this research,
  • (c) the names and affiliations of graduate students who used the resources, and
  • (d) the title, author, and relevant citation data for any theses or dissertations produced using the resources.

The accomplishment statement should be sent as a PDF to
