You may request to switch the research type of your approved general proposal from non-proprietary to proprietary within 60 days after the completion of the experiment or the end of the fiscal year (the end of March), whichever comes first.
To request the change, first download a “Request for Change of Research Type/Proprietary Use Agreement” and send the completed/signed form to:
SPring-8 Users Office, User Administration Division
Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI)
1-1-1 Kouto, Sayo-cho, Sayo-gun
Hyogo 679-5198 JAPAN
Upon receipt of the original form, the change of the research type will be accepted and an invoice for the proprietary beamtime fee will be sent out. Once the change is complete, you will be exempt from the requirements to publish and register your results with the Publications Database.
Please note that this does not apply to priority strategy proposal.
