HOW TO CITE AGRE IN PUBLICATIONS

The data gathered from AGRE families represents an unprecedented resource for the study of autism genetics. Therefore, we require that researchers using the sample acknowledge AGRE appropriately.

To this end, we have created the following guidelines for citing AGRE. If you need further clarification, please contact the Genomic Discovery Analytics Associate, Morgan MacCuaig.
  1. If researchers purchased AGRE biomaterials or accessed the genotypic or phenotypic data, AGRE and Autism Speaks should be acknowledged as follows:
    "We gratefully acknowledge the resources provided by Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE) and the participating AGRE families. The Autism Genetic Resource Exchange is a program of Autism Speaks."
  2. If support is received from AGRE or Autism Speaks in the form of discounted or free samples, AGRE and Autism Speaks should be acknowledged in the following manner:
    "We acknowledge support from the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE) and Autism Speaks. We gratefully acknowledge the resources provided by AGRE and the participating AGRE families. The Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE) is a program of Autism Speaks."
  3. If the contribution to your research has been significant, please consider citing AGRE in the author line of your publication as well as in the Acknowledgments section:
    "Autism Speaks' AGRE program"
