Classification of publications from the Fermi LAT collaboration

The LAT collaboration scientific papers in refereed journals are classified in three categories:

  1. Initial publications of results from the LAT Science investigation, particularly during the first year sky survey phase, and for certain major papers during all phases. These papers include, for example, catalogs and reports of substantial discoveries.
  2. Subsequent papers on a particular topic that involve more in-depth, detailed analysis and modeling.
  3. Papers that do not fall clearly into either Category I or II. These papers have LAT collaboration members among the authors and are clearly related to LAT science, but do not use LAT data or LAT analysis results not already published and do not use LAT resources such as instrument simulation tools. (Category III papers that include new LAT analysis can, under certain circumstances, include LAT team authors who are members of large, established collaborations that expect all members to sign papers. See the full LAT Publication Policy for details.)
