Deadline: within three years from the end of the research term
Submit the report to be published in SPring-8/SACLA Research Report. The submitted report will be reviewed by JASRI’s SPring-8/SACLA Research Results Review Committee in terms of the quantity, validity, and integrity of the information provided. The report will be rated on a three-point scale: A (Good; accepted), B (Fair; minor revision is required), and C (Poor; major revision is required). Reports with a rating of “B” or “C” must be revised and resubmitted. Only reports with a final rating of “A” will be approved by the Committee, made available online, and thus considered as the publication of research results. Prepare your report for SPring-8/SACLA Research Report in accordance with the instructions below. (You can also compile the results of multiple proposals into one report. In this case, the titles of all proposals should be given at the top of your manuscript.) Reports on the results of challenging proposals that failed can also be published in SPring-8/SACLA Research Report. This increases the number of opportunities to provide researchers with useful findings and encourages more researchers to attempt challenging research using SPring-8 and SACLA. You can submit your report or view the reports published in SPring-8/SACLA Research Report on the following website.
When your research proposal did not result in a publication
Proposal No., BL No.
Title of proposal
Authors including coauthors and affiliation
Summary of results (background and purpose, experimental summary, results and discussion, and challenges)
If the experiment ended in failure or the expected results were not obtained because the proposal was challenging or for any other reason, explain this in detail when writing about the experiment.
The content and expressions used in the paper should be clear and comprehensible to readers who are not experts in the field; include the significance and perspectives of research in the field.
Nonstandard abbreviations should be defined when first used. (e.g., PEEM: Photoelectron Emission Microscopy)
Figures and tables should be included in the text. All notes, figures, and tables should be numbered and cited consecutively in the text as Fig. 1, Fig. 2, Table 1, Table 2, etc.
The format of figures and tables should be .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .png, or (.tif) (PDF not accepted).
