The MATR asks that all researchers who utilize the MATR as a resource for their study, appropriately cite us in their published journal articles. Samples of placement of MATR references may include, but are not limited to:

Abstract, Method Section: One thousand men and women from the Mid-Atlantic Twin Registry completed questionnaires assessing...

Method, Participants: Participants were recruited from the population-based, Mid-Atlantic Twin Registry (MATR).

Researchers may also want to add a note about the MATR when citing other resources used for the study.
