Communication of results and progress within the ILD group is largely done through publications and conference contributions. The ILD publication and speakers bureau (PSB) coordinates and oversees this important aspect within ILD.
The ILD publication and speakers bureau is led by a chair, who is proposed by the spokesperson and confirmed by the institute assembly. The term of office is two years. The spokesperson and the institute assembly chair are ex-officio members of the bureau. Three more members of the bureau are proposed by the PSB chair and approved by the IA.
The bureau is responsible for implementing the ILD policy towards all kinds of ILD publications.

ILD has currently four types of publications, which are treated differently.
All publications will be made available on the ILD confluence and will receive internal ILD numbers. We encourage authors to submit ILD papers, topical papers, public notes, and conference proceedings to the arXiv after the ILD review process is completed. Draft ILD publications should not be uploaded to preprint servers before the completion of the review process.
Initial authorship of a topical paper is proposed by its main author, and an OPT-IN procedure is used so that people can make the case that they want to be included as authors, together with a reason why they should be included. The PSB chair has the final say, with remaining disagreements sent to the ET.
For ILD public notes, the PSB chair installs a one-person review committee. The reviewer should send her/his first feed-back within two weeks, and it is encouraged to complete the review process in two months. The final draft is submitted to ILD for comments. At least a two-week period should be allowed for comments. Reviewers may request that the new draft is again circulated to ILD.
Drafts of conference proceedings are circulated at least ten days to ILD before the submission deadline of the conference. A PSB member performs a light-weight review within four working days. Every ILD member is welcome to comment in addition. The author circulates the updated draft to ILD at least two days before the submission deadline.
Papers and topical papers have three categories, e.g., ILD-[PHYS/SOFT/TECH]-20XX-XXX
ILD notes and conference proceedings have additional categories, e.g., ILD-[PHYS/SOFT/TECH]-[PUB/INT/PROC]-20XX-XXX
The PSB is in charge of coordinating conference presentations by ILD members. It cooperates with centrally organized structures, for example in the context of LCC.
"We would like to thank the LCC generator working group and the ILD software working group for providing the simulation and reconstruction tools and producing the Monte Carlo samples used in this study.
This work has benefited from computing services provided by the ILC Virtual Organization, supported by the national resource providers of the EGI Federation and the Open Science GRID."
