Terms of Reference

The MLZ provides free beam time for scientific use at its instruments – under the condition that results are published in a peer reviewed journal or an equivalent paper, naming the MLZ. Please note that you agree with our Terms of Reference when submitting a proposal! Please find the acknowledgement patterns below.

Publications and Acknowledgments

The MLZ expects that the local contact in charge of the proposal is involved as co-author in publications mainly dealing with the results of the experiment.

Furthermore users are obliged to notify their local contacts about any publication of the results achieved at the MLZ. Please keep in mind, that without his help during the measurement, and providing the instrument the experiments would not be possible.

Proper mention shall be made of the used instrument and the operating institution, preferably on the first page.
Alternatively the following acknowledgement statement is required at the end of the publication.

  • “This work is based upon experiments performed at the [instrument name] instrument operated by [xxx] at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), Garching, Germany.”
    (being xxx one of the following institutions: HZG, JCNS, MPG, FRM II).

When a financial support has been granted to the experimental team from the operating institutions HZG, JCNS or FRM II or projects like NMI3 this has to be acknowledged in any publication.

For the acknowledgement please use the following text:

  • “The authors gratefully acknowledge the financial support provided by [xxx] to perform the neutron scattering measurements at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), Garching, Germany.”
    (being xxx one of the following institutions: HZG, JCNS or FRM II).

For NMI3 support please use the following text:

  • “This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under the NMI3-II Grant number 283883.”

Experimental Reports

  • An experimental report has to be written for each experiment performed at the MLZ.
  • Please submit it via your personal account at the User Office system, module Submit Exp. Report, within two months after your experiment.
  • There is the possibility to submit only one experimental report for multiple experiments in the scope of one proposal, in case they take place within a few weeks.

Please keep in mind that (the lack of) submitted experimental reports for former experiments is a decision factor for the referees allocating the beam time!

Two important hints:

  • The experimental report will be published only twelve months after the experiment was finished. Up to then, it won't also be possible to search for that report within the module View Experimental Reports of the User Office System!
  • If you would like to access your own experimental reports before they are published, please access the module Submit Exp. Report. A list of all experimental reports you have submitted will be available.
Further questions? Just ask the User Office!
