DESI Effort Reporting 2013-2016
The goal of this form is for you to offer an accounting of your time spent on DESI Project and Collaboration tasks, which is used for maintaining membership, establishing builder status, and establishing authorship rights.

DESI Service Effort
The following questions will ask you to estimate three kinds of time: DESI Service Effort, Total DESI Effort, and Total Research Effort. The following descriptions come from the collaboration policy on Membership Effort and Builder Status. Here we are asking about effort starting January 1, 2013.

We remind that DESI Service is what is accumulated to award Builder Status and Continuing Participation. The ratio of Total DESI Effort divided by Total Research Effort is what is compared to commitments made in Memoranda of Understanding.

If you are uncertain as to whether particular work should be counted as DESI Service, please contact the Membership Committee for clarification.

The phrase "Project and collaboration service", aka DESI Service, is intended to encompass all efforts toward the DESI common good. Examples of common-good effort include:

* being a convener of a WG or a sub-group of a WG;
* construction and documentation of catalogs that support a WG goal;
* reporting of quality assurance investigations on survey data;
* contributions to survey hardware, pipelines, target selection, survey
simulations, or imaging data sets;
* aid to documentation, public or collaboration web presence, or other forms of public outreach;
* contributions to data release papers or technical papers;
* service in refereeing collaboration papers;
* contributions toward collaboration management, governance, committees, fund-raising, or the organization of collaboration meetings.
* contributions to key-author papers.
* contributions to DECaLS, BASS, MzLS, and WISE imaging surveys.
* supervising junior members on tasks above.

Direct effort toward one's own DESI science analyses (non key-author papers) should be counted in Total DESI effort but not in DESI service effort. This is in more detail in the DESI membership policy.

Briefly describe the DESI service effort that you were most involved in the year 2016
Include WBS or SRP items where relevant.

Your answer
DESI service effort -- 2016
How many hours per week did you spend on DESI Service? [Enter hours per week, averaged over the year. ie. if you worked 10 hours per week on average for the full year, enter 10. If you worked 10 hours per week on average for 50% of the year enter 5. If you were not active in the specified year, enter 0.]
Your answer
DESI service effort -- 2015
[Hours per week, averaged over the year] We are ok if you are fuzzy about how to divide effort across years; just make a best guess that has a fair total over the years.

Your answer
Total DESI Effort
Time spent on DESI work, including all science analyses that directly relate to DESI data or design, that does not qualify as DESI Service is defined as "DESI Science'' time. The total of the two categories is "Total time on DESI''.

As described in the membership policy, for effort toward activities that benefit DESI but that also have a stand-alone purpose (for example, large cosmological simulations, external observational programs, or general theoretical work), please estimate the fraction specific to DESI and describe the DESI-specific activity or application.

In addition to the DESI service tasks described above, briefly describe any additional DESI research effort that you were most involved in during the year 2016
Include WBS or SRP items where relevant.

Your answer
Total DESI effort -- 2016 (Service + Research)
How many hours per week did you spend on DESI, including DESI Service as well as your own DESI-related science efforts? [Hours per week, averaged over the year.]
Your answer
Total DESI effort -- 2015
[Hours per week, averaged over the year.] We are ok if you are fuzzy about how to divide effort across years; just make a best guess that has a fair total over the years.

Total DESI effort -- 2014
[Hours per week, averaged over the year.]
Your answer
Total DESI effort -- 2013
[Hours per week, averaged over the year.]
Your answer
Total Research Effort
The phrase "research time'' refers to time available to the individual for their research program.

Examples of items that should be excluded from research-time accounting:

* teaching;
* academic (non-research) advising;
* department/university service, including service on student thesis or mentoring committees;
* national or community-level service;
* refereeing of proposals or (non-DESI) papers;
* attendance of seminars;
* consulting to research activities beyond one's direct (non-DESI) research activities (e.g., helping other students or consulting to a research facility, where there is no expectation of co-authorship).

Examples of items that should be included in research-time accounting:
* personal research;
* advising of students and postdocs on work relevant to the personal research group;
* any effort or service to large research collaborations (including DESI);
* research grant writing.

Total research effort -- 2016
How many hours per week (averaged over the year) do you estimate as your total research effort, including but not limited to DESI? This number should be equal to or larger than your Total DESI effort! [Enter hours per week, averaged over the year. ie. if you worked 10 hours per week on average for the full year, enter 10. If you worked 10 hours per week on average for 50% of the year, enter 5.]
