Mandatory acknowledgement in publications
When publishing any material arising from work carried out at MAX IV, do not forget to acknowledge MAX IV and our funders. This obligation, as laid out in our General Terms and Conditions for Open User Access (STYR 2016/1499) applies to both infrastructure personnel and external users or other researchers.
The following acknowledgment statement is to be used in all cases:
“We acknowledge MAX IV Laboratory for time on Beamline [xxxx] under Proposal [xxxx]. Research conducted at MAX IV, a Swedish national user facility, is supported by the Swedish Research council under contract 2018-07152, the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems under contract 2018-04969, and Formas under contract 2019-02496”.
Additionally, you are required to give appropriate acknowledgment of individual MAX IV personnel. References for publications related to Experiments carried out at the Facilities must be deposited in the MAX IV publications’ database within three (3) months of the publication date.
At MAX IV we have a number of User related Policies and Guidelines that lay out the conditions that govern the use of the MAX IV. These Policies define conditions of access, give definitions of different types of access and users, govern the use of data, data storage, safety aspects and much more. We try to be as transparent as possible and relevant documents will be found through the links below.
