ILL publication and data policy

You should agree with your local contact the terms of his involvement in the carrying out of your experiments and in the data analysis before coming to the ILL, as specified in the invitation form.

If the results of your experiment are going to be published you must give proper credit to ILL staff members who participated in the experiment and proper mention of ILL facilities (preferably on the first page).
The ILL considers it natural that local contacts who have made a significant contribution to the concept, design, execution, analysis or interpretation of user experiments should be offered the opportunity to be listed as authors in publications.
In any case you should at least acknowledge ILL scientists with their ILL affiliation at the end of your paper. Please use the following ILL address as the standard for author lists in publications:

Institut Laue-Langevin, 71 avenue des Martyrs,
CS 20156, 38042 Grenoble cedex 9, France
