What is expected from me?

Right after your measurements, you shall submit a brief report. Any results should be published and made available to the community. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to choose open access journals.

The publication should include:

  • The researchers who provided support, as co-authors,
  • Proper reference to CERIC and the facilities that provided access,
  • The following clause: “Access to CERIC facilities was partially supported by the ACCELERATE project, funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under grant agreement 731112. The authors acknowledge the CERIC-ERIC Consortium for access to experimental facilities and mobility support“.
