I was wondering whether is it a good idea to mention research group information in the affiliation while writing the manuscript.
Consider that the group is not officially recognized by my university, we have created a name for the group.
So the front part of the paper looks like this:
First Author Virtual Research Group Institute Name, Address E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Although I have seen papers with such information, I wonder about its official recognition. Can I get some suggestions on this ?
