NSLS-II Publications

Publications are an important way to disseminate the breadth and depth of research performed at the Department of Energy Office of Science User Facilities. The NSLS / NSLS-II Publications Database is the official source for listing all journal articles, conference proceedings, dissertations, books, technical reports, patents, and any other published work that used NSLS and/or NSLS-II resources. Users are expected to report their publications to the facility and this information is carefully considered during the proposal review process.

NSLS-II is a highly multidisciplinary user facility where publications reflect a wide range of scientific fields including biology, chemistry, materials science, physics, and engineering. Many of these manuscripts are published in high impact journals.

Publications Database

The database contains a record of all publications reported to NSLS and NSLS-II and can be searched by author, beamline, journal, year, and DOI.

Facility Acknowledgement

All users are obligated to inform the Brookhaven National Laboratory Photon Sciences Directorate of their publications or Ph.D. thesis based on research carried out, in whole or in part, at NSLS or NSLS-II.

Use the following acknowledgment when referencing work done at NSLS-II.

This research used resources [or insert beamline if applicable] of the National Synchrotron Light Source II, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility operated for the DOE Office of Science by Brookhaven National Laboratory under Contract No. DE-SC0012704.

Also include the following acknowledgement when work involved the structural biology beamlines at NSLS-II (LiX, FMX, AMX):

The Center for BioMolecular Structure (CBMS) is primarily supported by the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) through a Center Core P30 Grant (P30GM133893), and by the DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research (KP1605010).
