Users who have beamtime through programme access must produce a short report at the end of each six month allocation period. This report should emphasise the scientific highlights and the status of the project and must relate to any milestones specified in the original proposal. Any changes in strategy or problems which have been experienced must be identified. The report will be reviewed at the subsequent Peer Review meeting and further beamtime allocation will be assigned based on the previous period's results. The User Office will contact Programme Mode Principal Investigators to request completion of this information.
It is a requirement that all users who have beamtime via the Direct Access produce a short experimental report within six months of beamtime. The report is submitted online and should emphasise the scientific highlights and the status of the project and must relate to any milestones specified in the original proposal. Any changes in strategy or problems which have been experienced must be identified.
Principal Investigators should submit their report online.
All experimental reports are classed as confidential and will only be made available to Principal Beamline Scientists, the local contact, the Directors, the Peer Review Panel and the Communications team. It is understood that, because of the need for confidentiality, not all details of the analysis can be included in a report requested soon after an experiment run but please be as complete as possible.
