SLAC Author Responsibilities

All written results of SLAC work must be properly tracked, collected, and made publicly accessible as mandated by SLAC’s DOE contract. This applies to all work performed at SLAC, or work completed collaboratively elsewhere utilizing SLAC effort.

In line with DOE Order 241.1B, Scientific Publishing Services processes and tracks all SLAC-authored research papers, theses, or reports, regardless of where such research may eventually appear (e.g., a journal article, conference proceedings, preprint archive, or server elsewhere).

It is each SLAC author's responsibility to register and upload their SLAC documents to InfoMedia by doing the following:

  • Register for a document number with SciDoc.
  • Put the DOE contract acknowledgment on your paper (i.e., "Work supported [optional: in part] by the U.S. Department of Energy under contract number DE-AC02-76SF00515.").
  • Submit a copy of your registered document to SciDoc before publication or electronic posting
    (this includes submission to the arXiv).
