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 as defined by the Department of Energy. (See list at right.)

Publications Database

The database contains a record of all publications reported to NSLS and NSLS-II and can be searched by author, beamline, journal, and year. If you plan to enter a new publication into the database, please search for it first to ensure that it has not already been entered.

Submit a New Publication

If your publication does not have a DOI, or you want your publication to appear immediately in the beamline publication statistics, use this form.

Submit Long Form

Let us do the work for you. Provide a DOI and answer a few questions and we’ll do the rest. Since upload to the database requires an extra step, it may take a few days for your publication to appear on the beamline webpages.

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 Life Science Biomedical Technology Research resource is primarily supported by the National Institute of Health, National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) through a Biomedical Technology Research Resource P41 grant (P41GM111244), and by the DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research (KP1605010).

Use the following acknowledgment when referencing work done at NSLS.
