This is the regular reminder about affiliations, with some additions this spring. Please note 4 key things: 

  1. CIRES researchers should include their CIRES affiliation in all publications, conference presentations, bios, and emails. We should not represent ourselves as federal employees. For CIRES researchers at NOAA, the easiest way to do this is to use dual affiliations, eg: 1=Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, CU Boulder [or: CIRES, University of Colorado Boulder], 2=NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory. 
  2. CIRES@NOAA researchers funded by the Cooperative Agreement (“task II”) should acknowledge this in all publications. You can cite the CA in your acknowledgement section: this work was supported (in part by / by / etc.) the NOAA Cooperative Agreement with CIRES, NA17OAR4320101.
  3. All CIRES researchers should get an ORCiD and ResearcherID if they don’t already have them. In InsideCIRES, check the ASA publications tab to see if CIRES has your OrchID and ResearchID: You can enter missing IDs there or apply for an ORCiD here: and a ResearcherID here: (each takes only a few minutes).
  4. CIRES researchers must submit to NOAA’s Institutional Repository any papers supported to any degree by the Cooperative Agreement. Good practice is to do so upon publication—unless your work is open access, you’ll need to save a very specific version of the paper, and sometimes people discard those as months pass. You can learn more here: and submit here:

Many of you already do these things already—thank you.
