Are consultations free?

Yes, anyone can get up to 3 hours of free consultation!

Is there a queue to get support from NBIS?

NBIS always strives to start your project as soon as possible, however the start time depends on what kind of support you need.

For "User fee based support" you get help as soon as someone from NBIS with the right expertise has the time to help you.

For "Peer review based support" there are three calls per year and a selection process, read more here.

If NBIS helps with my research, how should they be acknowledged?

If the work results in a publication, NBIS and SciLifeLab should be mentioned in the acknowledgements with the statement:

This work was supported by the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) at SciLifeLab.

For projects that have received support through our Peer review (WABI) track, please use this statement instead:

This work was supported by the SciLifeLab & Wallenberg Data Driven Life Science Program, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (grants: KAW 2020.0239 and KAW 2017.0003), and by the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) at SciLifeLab.

If NBIS personnel have made substantial scientific contributions to the work, they should also be coauthor(s) according to the ICMJE recommendations.
