​Are there SLAC/AD requirements for publications derived from work done at FACET and Test Beam Facilities? 

Answer Collapse/Expand Text:

​There are three circumstances to consider:

A.  Publication generated using SLAC resources (e.g. SLAC beam, services, people ..). This work must get a SLAC publication number and be submitted to the SLAC document repository, SciDoc. THIS IS A REQUIREMENT OF THE SLAC DOE CONTRACT. If you cannot access SciDoc, please fill out this form: Word Document.

B.  Publication has a SLAC co-author. It is the responsibility of the principal author to ensure that SLAC, SLAC personnel and the SLAC contract is appropriately acknowledged. Submitting the the publication to SciDoc will help ensure that this is done correctly. If you cannot access SciDoc, please fill out this form: Word Document.

C.  Publication has a SLAC (primary) author. In this case the AD Publication Policy and Guidelines apply. Click on the link to get the policy document.


If you fulfil any of these circumstances, please read the Publication Policy below.

4). Applies - to all Accelerator Directorate (AD) personnel listed as authors or co-authors in publications. Also to FACET & Test Facility users who have used SLAC resources to generate the publication.

5). Requirements:

  • Credit - all publications must acknowledge funding source (e.g. Work supported by Department of Energy contract DE-AC02-76SF00515).
  • Author affilations - must be shown on title page
  • SciDoc - All publications must have a SLAC publication number. It is the lead author’s responsibility to request a publication number and upload the final draft of the publication to the SciDoc repository.
  • Review & Approval - All publications where the lead author is in AD must be reviewed and approved by their division before being submitted. This isn't required for publications where the lead author is not in AD.
6). Guidelines:
  • Coauthors - must make a substantive contribution and have the right to read and comment on the publication before submission.

8). Additional Resouces:
 If you cannot access SciDoc, you can register using a form: Word Document.
