DELPHI Preservation Policy

  • The DELPHI data consist of the so-called Short DSTs and Extended Short DSTs (SDST and XSDST) stored in Castor.
  • Requests for access, for both physics research and pedagogical purposes, will have to be made through the acting DELPHI spokesperson
  • The acting DELPHI spokesperson has the right to veto access to DELPHI archived data if it is considered to be against the interest of DELPHI or science in general
  • The acting DELPHI spokesperson will consult an “Archived data board” with respect to the involvement of former DELPHI members mentioned below
  • The “Archived data board” will consist of the latest appointed members of Coordination, DEC and Research Line convenors
  • Access to the archived DELPHI data will ONLY be authorised to non-former DELPHI persons in collaboration with one or more former “expert” DELPHI members
  • Expert DELPHI members will be considered as those having extensively participated in the analysis of DELPHI data closely related to the newly proposed analysis
  • A paper resulting from the use of archived DELPHI data will have to be co-signed by these collaborating former DELPHI members
  • An “internal DELPHI referee” will have to be consulted before approval for publication; he/she will act as if a Journal referee
  • This access policy will become applicable one year after the vast majority of the presently planned papers are published and will remain valid until further notice. The starting date will ultimately be defined by the Collaboration Board
