Publications in 2015


The DUBBLE beam lines have had another productive year with 100 peer reviewed publications incorporating DUBBLE data. This corresponds to roughly one paper for every three days’ beam time, a very satisfactory rate of return, reflecting the fact that the DUBBLE beam lines attract a mature and highly productive user community.

Quality as well as quantity is important when measuring output, and here too this year’s record is good. When our publication statistics are viewed by impact factor, 39% of the papers were published in a journal with an impact factor over 5 and 10% in a journal with an impact factor greater than 9. These data are illustrated below, benchmarked against some well-known journals in the fields of physics, chemistry and materials science. The core output of DUBBLE users appears in journals in these research fields.

We would also like to congratulate the 12 students who successfully defended their theses incorporating DUBBLE data this year.
