Acknowledging the CLS
Please include the following Acknowledgement when submitting or presenting results from either 05B1-1 or 05ID-1 beamline at the BMIT facility:
“Research described in this paper was performed at the BMIT facility at the Canadian Light Source, which is supported by the Canada Foundation for Innovation, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the University of Saskatchewan, the Government of Saskatchewan, Western Economic Diversification Canada, the National Research Council Canada, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.”
Publishing and Reporting Results:
All Users and CLS Staff are required to report any publications based
on work they performed, in whole or in part, at the Canadian Light Source.
We request that all publications with data from 05B1-1 POE-2 endstation will include a reference to:
Wysokinski, T. Chapman, D. Adams, G., Renier, M. Suortti, P. Thomlinson, W. Beamlines of the biomedical imaging and therapy facility at the Canadian Light Source-Part 1. Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A, vol. 582, iss. 1 pp. 73-76, 2007.
Data from 05ID-2 SOE-1 endstation shall include a reference to:

P.S.Please send us links to any new publications with BMIT data.
BMIT Collaboration and Publication Policy
The standard level of involvement of BMIT staff is to ensure that the beamline setup is ready for performing proposed imaging experiments. Sometimes, the BMIT staff may involve more technical and scientific support in imaging experiment design and/or data analysis.
The engagement of BMIT staff should be properly credited in publications resulting from this work. Therefore, in addition to the acknowledgement of the BMIT and its funding agencies as described on the BMIT webpage, the name of the BMIT staff member(s) performing such work should also be properly acknowledged.
In cases where the involvement of BMIT staff in a project goes beyond this standard level and requires substantial effort on or off the beamline, co-authorship will be more appropriate. This would include, for instance, situations where (1) there is a need to modify equipment or software to allow an experiment to be performed, (2) there is a substantial effort to develop or execute imaging experimental protocols, (3) substantial help is required to reconstruct imaging data and further qualitative and/or quantitative imaging data analysis, such as CT imaging reconstruction and 3D remodeling. When such a substantial involvement of BMIT staff is foreseen, either by the User or by BMIT management, the question of authorship should preferably be addressed before the experiments are performed.
