XMM-Newton Users Handbook

6.3 The XMM-Newton data distribution

Once the ODF/SDF files are produced, the SDF files become public immediately and the ODF files are made available to the PI of the XMM-Newton proposal, who can download them from the XMM-Newton Science Archive. At a later stage the PI will get another automatic email notification when the PPS products have been successfully generated and ingested into the XMM-Newton Science Archive. If, for some reason the ODF files are improved during the year of proprietary rights, the PI will be also notified by email.
