What to Do Following Your Experiment
1Complete End of Run SurveyUsers are requested to fill out a satisfaction survey called the “End of Run Survey” following completion of their experimental run. Survey results are used to improve user services and the NSLS-II facility in general. Complete the End of Run Survey.
2Submit Publication Citations
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. Submit citations online through the NSLS-II Publications Database upon publication of the work.

3Review the Data Mangement Policy
The user community and its sponsoring organizations are very diverse with differing requirements for data retention. The NSLS-II cannot guarantee indefinite data archival.
Users of the NSLS-II are responsible for meeting the data management requirements of their home institutions and funding agencies. Once data have been provided to the user group, the user group is responsible for managing the long-term retention of their data.
The ownership of data generated at the NSLS-II is governed by the User Agreement in place between the user group and the facility. Refer to your User Agreement for more details.
Data Retention Practices
The NSLS-II is committed to providing its users with their data in a timely and convenient fashion. Experiment data and metadata collected at the NSLS-II may be stored at and retrieved from the facility for at least 1 year.
