I have a question that is related to this one and it is about a paper acknowledgements section.
I am an economist. I am currently working in university "A." I am preparing a paper, and in this initial stage of the study I will visit the foreign university "B," where I will collect data. For this visiting period, I am going to receive a travel grant from the third party institute "C," which covers both the travel and the stay abroad.
Within a few months, I shall leave my current university "A," so when the paper will be published (if it will be good enough, ça va sans dire) I will be in another university, maybe university "D."
Also, assume in university "D" I won't get any additional funding for this study.
Given this situation, which one of these four institutes will have to be thanked in the acknowledgements of this paper?
- the current university A
- the hosting university B
- the granting institute C
- the future university D (I think this won't have to be thanked; I have never seen anybody thanking her own university when this university does not provide any extra funds)
What is the academic bon ton in this case?
