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.
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.
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:
For NMI3 support please use the following text:
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!
