I hold a research position at a university where I'm working on a certain project in a certain field. I met another professor from another field and began working on a new project with him. I'm submitting our work for publication and I'm unsure whether I should acknowledge funding from my position in the question: “Is there funding to report for this submission?”

I haven't been paid for this particular project but my stipend is basically my livelihood so I'm in two minds about whether to acknowledge it or not.

    Many journals have detailed statements about how to answer this, for instance PLOS has guidelines which include the statement: "Authors are not required to provide the complete list of every single grant that supports them if the grant is not related to the research published". However this may not be the same for all journals, so try and check with them. journals.plos.org/plosone/s/disclosure-of-funding-sources – Stuart F Nov 25 '19 at 11:26

    Add a few words @StuartF, and you probably have the best available answer. I recommend formalizing the answer. – Buffy Nov 25 '19 at 13:00
