Public acknowledgment of the University of Toronto Data Sciences Institute (DSI) in all presentations and publications is a requirement associated with the receipt of DSI awards and supports. This assists us in measuring the impact of our programs and supports future funding.
The use of the DSI logo allows everyone to easily recognize that an activity is supported by DSI. Where space and circumstances allow, a credit line that refers to DSI accompanies the logo.
The following options may be used:
"Supported by the Data Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto”
“This project is funded [in part] by the Data Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto"
“With the participation of the Data Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto”
“This project has been made possible [in part] by the Data Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto”
“We acknowledge the [financial] support of the Data Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto.”
When more than one organization has provided support or there is insufficient space for a credit line, it is possible to use only the DSI logo ensuring it is in a prominent position.
The DSI logo must receive the same prominence and proportion as the logos and identifiers of other funding parties who have made a similar contribution.
To ensure the integrity of the DSI logo, some criteria must be applied. The logo may not be altered in any way. It is displayed prominently, in generous open space, free from close association with any interfering or distracting elements, and may not form part of a headline, phrase or sentence.
You can use the DSI logo and, where space allows, the acknowledgement text on printed or electronic documents, marketing materials, public reports, publications, and media products related to the funded activities. Where materials are online, the "University of Toronto Data Sciences Institute" logo will link to the DSI website at datasciences.utoronto.ca. If the funded project is a publication of a paper, book, or magazine, the acknowledgement must be prominently displayed in the masthead or an acknowledgement page in the publication.
To allow the DSI to share or retweet information about the funded project, recipients are asked to provide the address of their Twitter account(s) in which they publish content related to the funded activities.
Recipients are asked to tag the DSI Twitter account (@UofTDSI) in any tweets related to the funded project. Recipients are also asked to follow the DSI on social media by subscribing on Twitter to @UofTDSI.
Financial support from the DSI must be acknowledged in press releases that refer to funding sources for the funded activities. The DSI may provide a quote on request for inclusion in such news releases.
The DSI logo must be displayed on websites and applications (apps) related to the funded activities. Where materials are electronic, the logo must link to the DSI website at datasciences.utoronto.ca.
The DSI logo and, if possible, the acknowledgement text, are used when the logos of other sponsors, supporters or funding parties are displayed in advertisements and advertorials, including paid or free placements and public service announcements.
