Cases of multiple supervisions

This tool does not support cases of multiple supervisions because supervision rules outside of Université Paris-Saclay may change.

On this topic, the Université Paris-Saclay signature charter specifies :

In this case, we recommend a multi-line signature:

  • The general Université Paris-Saclay signature described above is used for one line and includes all the supervisory bodies within Université Paris-Saclay
  • Another line is provided for each of the unit’s external academic co-supervisory body, with a signature that follows the guidelines of that body.

The order of the lines is agreed jointly by the supervisory bodies and the unit director, and for each author concerned may possibly depend on his or her employing institution.

The postal address of the corresponding author (reprint author) may only include the line relating to the author’s employing institution.

In the specific case of CIAMS, a second line is added as follows : CIAMS, Université d'Orléans, 45067, Orléans, France.

How do I acknowledge a funding ?

About funding sources, the signature charter specifies:

Activities and projects such as those led by Idex, Labex , CEPR partnerships, Research Federations, federating institutes, Observatories and so on, as well as funding programs, including those from ANR,  European and other  institutions, and chairs should not feature in the signature. However, they may or should be mentioned in the acknowledgements where the project identifier should be provided.

Here are some examples of mentions:
