Please keep in mind that we are an English-language publication and that a university/institution with a different first language may typically style affiliations in a different order.
JMIR uses a bottom-up ordering approach for its affiliations. That is, the smallest element is listed first, followed by the next largest element, then usually the university (or institution) last. These are followed by the city and country fields, respectively.
- Bristol Interaction Group, Faculty of Engineering, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
- School of Management, Massey Business School, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand
The first field is currently* the only one that is required. If your affiliation has more than 3 parts, you can enter two elements in each of the first 2 fields as necessary.
*This will be updated in Fall 2018.
IMPORTANT: If your organization legally requires its subunits be to credited in a specific order, please upload documentation as a supplementary file under the "Other files" subsection. This will not be published and is only used for internal reference.
We do not make exceptions for personal preferences.
