Acceptable Use Policy

As Intersect's users belong to many different organisations, we are interested in promoting a simple acceptable use policy. We have reviewed the acceptable use policies of our members and have arrived at the following:

Intersect's Acceptable Use Policy requires that users abide by the IT, Security and Acceptable Use policies of their institution.

Attribution Policy: Attributing Intersect

In many cases, research outputs assisted by Intersect’s activities are not visible to Intersect. As part of an attempt to track our output and impact, we would like to be attributed in various forms where Intersect activities contributed to the work. Standard forms of attribution make it much easier for us to search for and track such outputs, relieving everyone of the overhead of maintaining lists and databases.

This document describes some of the situations where such attribution is requested, and what form it should take. There will be other situations outside of these cases where Intersect activities contributed to a research output. We would still like to be attributed in a relevant and appropriate fashion and in this case, please contact us to discuss.
