In order to qualify for beam-time at the NCNR, you must report any publications resulting from previous work using the facility to the NCNR in a timely fashion.
There is no requirement for publications resulting from work at the NCNR to have a NIST co-author, however you are encouraged to openly discuss this issue with the NCNR scientists responsible for the instrument you are using, and, where appropriate, include them as co-authors.
Publications that have a NIST co-author must be approved by the Washington Editorial Review Board (WERB). Your NIST co-authors will take responsibility for handling this process.
Publications that do not explicitly have a NIST-NCNR co-author are expected to include the following acknowledgment: We acknowledge the support of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce, in providing the neutron research facilities used in this work.
