Data Processing and Distribution status as of 31-Dec-2006

Total number of Planned Observations in Routine Phase (revs 0103-1292) 5777
Total number of Performed Observations in Routine Phase 5434
Total number of Observation Data Files generated 5279
Total number of Pipeline/Data Products sets generated and distributed 5029

Turnaround (in days) between Data acquisition and final Data Products distribution (last Quarter)
Values in excess of 90 days usually indicate a problem analysing the data and/or that re-processing was required.
Data Delay

Details on the Observation Status can be found on the Observation & Data Processing pages.

Publications based on XMM-Newton data

Number of refereed papers based on XMM-Newton Data
1341
Refereed papers
Extracted from ADS, selecting only those papers which make direct use of XMM-Newton archival data and excluding papers which make indirect use of XMM-Newton data from published results
Quarterly Pubs
Please note; the large number of publications in the 1st quarter of 2001 is due to the release of the A&A special issue on XMM-Newton. The number of publications in the quarter at the time of issue is an underestimate.
