Communication and publication

Furthermore, it should preferably be clearly stated in all peer-reviewed publications, conference proceedings, monographs etc. that your research is funded by the foundation. This is done by adding the following statement to the Acknowledgments: “The work presented here is supported by the Carlsberg Foundation, grant CF00-0000”.
