Global BioImaging publishes an article on the added value of imaging core facilities
Global BioImaging has published an article titled Added value of open access imaging core facilities written and endorsed by the Global BioImaging Management Board.
This article outlines the benefits of open access imaging core facilities for different groups including researchers who use imaging and microscopy, imaging scientists who provide technology access and imaging service, industry who supply and service the instruments, and national funders who provide support to imaging infrastructures. The arguments supporting imaging core facilities can be used during negotiations and interactions with the target audiences outlined within the document.
Global BioImaging strongly encourages the use of this document during discussions and negotiations as well as during a grant writing when one needs to advocate for continued use and support of imaging core facilities and imaging infrastructures at large.
