Guidelines for uploading experimental reports

Following the recommendation of the ILL Scientific Council, experimental reports are mandatory for ALL experiments performed, not just for continuation experiments.

All ILL experimental reports are software-archived and accessible via the web server as PDF files.
You must use the Visitors Club to upload your experimental report to the ILL.
Experimental reports uploaded on the web are now made available immediately after reception.
Please read the following guidelines carefully before submitting your file.

  • You must upload a preliminary report within 6 months from the date of the experiment.

This report can be updated and modified during the 6 months after the experiment.

The new version will replace the old.

  • You must upload a final report within 12 months from the date of the experiment.

This report can be updated and modified during the 12 months after the experiment.
The new version will replace the old.

When you upload a final report, it will replace the corresponding preliminary report.

  • After 12 months from the date of the experiment, the final report becomes public and not modifiable.

Steps to follow:

  • Create your experimental report and save it as a pdf file on your system (three A4-pages maximum)
  • Then, connect to the User Club: you will have access to the list of all your proposals (as proposer or co-proposer) for which experimental reports are still missing through the tab 'Experimental report/Experimental reports upload''.
  • Select a proposal from the list for which you are sending the report.
  • Press 'Upload' and select the pdf file in your local system.
  • The system creates a first page with the experiment details: proposal number, title, experimental team, instrument, abstract ...
  • Press 'View the report in PDF' to see your report in pdf format.
  • Please note that it is now your responsability to check if you have created your file correctly. As the uploading system is now fully automatic, we will no longer be able to check it for you.
  • If the pdf file is not satisfactory, press 'Remove' and upload a modified file.
