Policy for the SAP-EEC,MMS-EEC and LSPEC

In order to align TRIUMF policies on openness with other laboratories around the world, this document outlines in broad terms our new policies. Below EEC refers to all three committees.

1) All proposals submitted to TRIUMF will be available for view on the TRIUMF internal WEB in their entirety after review and if approved by the EEC.

a. Only the title, author list, status, and short abstract (< 300 words) will be displayed on the public web pages.

b. The EEC reports (and comments) are internal TRIUMF documents and will only be displayed on the internal TRIUMF web site. The full EEC report will be made available to the appropriate external funding committees.

c. Proposals with private sector partners should follow Non Disclosure Agreements.(NDA)

2) Presentations to the EECs are open to everyone. Slides are available to the committee only.

3) Review committee members will treat the content of proposals as confidential.

4) Requests for information on proposals from outside the TRIUMF community will be granted only by the authors in consultation with TRIUMF communications.

5) Within 60 days of receiving beam time the spokesperson will provide to the Science Division for posting, on the public WEB pages, a short summary (< 300 words) of the experiment results. The summary of results will be used in the annual report. Details are disclosed at the discretion of the spokesperson.

6) The interpretation and application of this policy is the responsibility of the respective Division

Head.
