Acknowledging the CLS

When presenting the results collected from the CLS, researchers are expected to acknowledge the beamline(s) and the participation of any beamline staff assisting in any aspect of an experiment and include the following statement:

Part or all of the research described in this paper was performed at the Canadian Light Source, a national research facility of the University of Saskatchewan, which is supported by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the National Research Council (NRC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Government of Saskatchewan, and the University of Saskatchewan.


SM staff will ensure the beamline is ready for users to perform the standard experiments. When a significant amount of SM staff’s time is needed to modify the existing experiment setup, help with data mining, etc., a co-authorship is expected to recognize the contributions from SM staff.
