Details on XMM-Newton related Ph.D. to become publicly available

As  explained  in  previous  Newsletters  (see  e.g. issue #173),  the
XMM-Newton  team  is  collecting  information about  the completion  of
doctorates  and Ph.D.  theses based  on  (or making  use of)  XMM-Newton

So far,  received information was  only used internally by the SOC.  In
the framework of mission evaluation,  ESA's Science Programme Committee
(SPC) has been provided with statistical information about publications,
including now also doctorates and  Ph.D. theses.  As a consequence this
information will also be made public.

We will inform about the availability of a dedicated web page in a future

Yours sincerely,

XMM-Newton SOC
