When submitting a publication based on results from SciNet computations, we ask that you use the following line in the acknowledgements:

Computations were performed on the [systemname] supercomputer at the SciNet HPC Consortium. SciNet is funded by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada; the Digital Research Alliance of Canada; the Ontario Research Fund: Research Excellence; and the University of Toronto.

(replace [systemname] with the appropriate system, e.g. Niagara, Mist, Rouge, ...).

Also please cite the Niagara deployment paper:
