UBFC Signature & Logo

Based on a 2014 agreement, the publication of the legal decree finalizing the establishment of the COMUE UBFC as public (High Eduction & Research (HER) organisation, initially expected in January 2015, finally occurred on April 1st, 2015. Before this date, it was not legally possible to trigger the common scientific signature by instructing the UBFC research personnels to do so. Therefore, at the time of the hearing on April 21st, 2015 the IDEX/ISITE international jury correctly pointed out that the common scientific signature was not yet observable. Since April 2015, all UBFC research personnels have been instructed by various channels (Presidents of COMUE UBFC member organisations, heads of laboratories, groups,…) to operate as follows :

  • Make “Univ. Bourgogne Franche-Comté” appearing in the address field of all scientific papers involving UBFC personnels. Simultaneously, address fields pointing to the UBFC member organizations such as “Université de Bourgogne” or “Université de Franche-Comté” are not allowed any more in scientific papers.
  • Using the large UBFC logo (Fig. 1.1) on the title slide of talks presented at conferences.
  • Using the UBFC icon (Fig. 1.2) on all slides that UBFC researchers present in conferences.
  • Using the acronym UBFC or the UBFC icon in all appropriate circumstances such as submissions of national and international projects, short address field of various forms, etc…

The effectiveness of the implementation of the common scientific signature was already visible  as soon as July 2015 when the 19 UBFC papers in the list below could be referenced in Web of Science. In this list, the UBFC affiliation can readily be checked on-line using the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) link when available. Note that papers stamped “2014” are either due to various technical delays experienced by some publishers or to the initiatives of some UBFC personnels eager to push UBFC on track notwithstanding the delay of publication of the legal decree creating UBFC.
