HZB Co-author

Without the dedicated work of HZB scientists in designing, commissioning, building, maintaining, and developing the HZB instruments and experimental stations many experiments could not be carried out. For this reason we would appreciate it if you included your HZB local contact as co-author on your papers.
If your research team is largely self-sufficient and you do not intend to include your local contact as a co-author on publications, you should discuss this with your local contact during the experiment.


Use of HZB facilities

The use of the HZB facilities and the allocation of beamtime must be properly mentioned in the publication. For example:

In the experimental section of the paper:
“Measurements were carried out at the XX instrument (beamline/station) at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.”

and in the acknowlegements
"We thank HZB for the allocation of neutron/synchrotron radiation beamtime"


Acknowledging financial support

Groups from EU member states

Should your group have received financial support in the framework of one of the EC programmes (NMI3 II, CALIPSO, BioStructX, CALIPSOplus), the EC requests that you acknowledge this support in your publication.
 
Furthermore, work funded by EU Commission programs within the Horizon 2020 framework must be openly available, ie "open access (free of charge, online access for any user) to all peer-reviewed scientific publications relating to its results" must ensured - see Guidelines on Implementation of Open Access to Scientific Publications and Research Data [pdf].
 

Groups from German universities

Should your group have received financial support from HZB, then HZB requests that you acknowledge this support in your publication.
 

Groups from Russia (BESSY II only)

Should your group have received financial support from the Russian German Laboratory (RGL), then the RGL requests that you acknowledge this support in your publication
