XMM-Newton publications are searched for on the SAO/NASA's
Data System Bibliographic Services (ADS). Every potential XMM-Newton
paper is then manually inspected and either classified according to the
criteria listed below or rejected if none of the criteria are met. For
all selected papers the following applies:
- Only refereed publications are considered.
- Publications are classified in 9 categories.
- Only Papers in categories 1 to 5 fulfil the criteria requested
to be considered as XMM-Newton Science Publications and are
included in the list reported to the ESA's advisory body: the
Science Programme Committee (SPC).
List of categories
Nine categories are defined according to the criteria shown here below,
where criteria requested for XMM-Newton Science Publications are
highlighted in bold; the selected refereed paper
- makes use of data from XMM-Newton observations or uses pipeline products
- presents catalogues based on XMM-Newton observations
- predicts numerical results for XMM-Newton observations,
e.g. performs simulations considering the detector
- describes XMM-Newton, its instruments, operations,
software, calibration or scientific impact, including
the papers resulting from the "XMM-Newton: The Next Decade"
- makes use of primary catalogues (XMM-Newton
Serendipitous Source Catalogue, XMM-Newton Slew Survey Source Catalogue,
XMM-Newton OM Serendipitous Ultra-violet
Source Survey Catalogue, Catalog of Serendipitous Sources
Detected with the XMM-Newton OM).
- makes use of published XMM-Newton results, especially
if the results are highlighted in tables, figures or
- refers to XMM-Newton in connections with a citation to a (refereed) publication
- refers to XMM-Newton in general
- uses or refers to expressions derived from XMM-Newton (XMMU, XMM/Subaru, XMMLSS, XMM-PRODEX) or mentions
XMM-Newton only in the bibliography

XMM-Newton publications were analysed in Ness et al. (2014).
