35-ton authorship policy¶
The shifter will sit in ROC west (WH atrium), but must have access
to transportation in case there is a need for intervention at PC4.
A Fermi ID badge is needed to access ROC west, please allow time to obtain
a badge before your first shift in your travel plans.
Shifters must be available for 2 hours of training during working
hours on a workday no more than 7 days before their first shift.
One "block" is consecutive shifts for the same time slot each day
Monday, Tuesday, Wedensday, Thursday = 1 block
Friday, Saturday, Sunday = 1 block
All shifts (day, evening, owl) have the same weight.
Shift blocks containing Christmas Day or New Year’s Day have double weight.
3 months of running is roughly 80 shift blocks, thus we are aiming to
bring in 30 new people outside of those currently working on the 35-ton.
There will be a run coordinator (Alan Hahn) and a rotating deputy run
coordinator. The deputy is expected to be resident at Fermilab and
available 24/7 during his or her service period. Two blocks of shift
credit will be given for 1 week of service as deputy. The deputy schedule is
currently being filled by invitation, if you are interested contact Alan.
We are hoping to have the possibility for remote shift operation
for the evening and owl slots, but cannot guarantee anything at this time.
During the purge and recirculation phase (1-31 October),
there will be lots of DAQ development and other commissioning.
Experts working intensely during this period are encouraged to
individually request shift credit from the 35ton authorship committee
even if they did not sign up on the shift schedule for this period.
Authorship policy for 35-ton papers
This policy applies to any peer-reviewed publication, including
conference proceedings that are peer-reviewed.
Technical sub-system papers: Papers that describe only a particular subsystem's
design, construction and operation without using data from other subsystems
are considered technical sub-system papers, and the L3 project manager
for that subsystem
will decide the author list. Examples: a paper that describes the cryogenic
system performance during the phase 2 run using only data from the
monitoring instruments that are a part of that system. A paper that describes
the design of the cold readout electronics and the test bench measurements
done to characterize them. If the same paper were to include a S/N
measurement from cosmic ray muons crossing the detector, it is not considered
a technical sub-system paper for the purpose of the authorship
Engineers: A list of engineers that made a significant contribution
to one or more 35-ton sub systems will be provided by each L3
sub-system manager. For each paper that utilizes this subsystem,
the engineers will be offered authorship on an opt-in basis.
(i.e. they will be asked if they want to be an author, and added when
they respond positively.)
Scientists (including postdocs and students):
Each individual must satisfy one of the conditions listed below to be
an author on any and all papers that present data from the 35ton phase
2 run (not including sub-system technical papers as described above).
(1) Two blocks of shifts (note that single shift blocks containing
Christmas Day or New Years Day satisfy the two block requirement)
(2) Service as a deputy run coordinator for a minimum of 2 weeks (continuous)
(3) A VERY significant contribution to construction, installation,
commissioning or operations. Individuals requesting authorship using
this exception must send a formal request to the 35-ton authorship committee
and are strongly encouraged to do so before the run begins.
The 35-ton authorship committee is Mark Convery, Michelle Stancari,
Alan Hahn and Tom Junk.
