Having some difficulties with figures and my MSc thesis. Help?
posted by Slackermagee to education (9 answers total)
In acknowledging that a figure was used from another source, I've repeatedly seen "reproduced with permission" or "taken with permission". Is this exactly-what-it-says-on-the-tin (emailing the source for permissions) or is this referring to taking a figure from an accessible publication and referencing the usage in the back of the thesis?
For one of my figures, I simply (well, not simply) purified up a batch of protein and handed it off to an associate professor who very kindly fixed it and ran it through the TEM for me, given that I'd not need to repeat the experiment, that I didn't have radioactivity training (uranyl acetate staining), and that it was a damn expensive instrument that I had no business touching. How do I acknowledge this in the methods section?
I apologize if this was easily google-able, I've not been able to get a clear cut answer from my weakened google-fu.
