Definitions of thick target yields are reviewed in relation to their documentation for the experimental nuclear reaction data library (database). Researchers reporting experimental thick target yields are urged to define their yields clearly with an appropriate unit in order to compile them in the experimental data library (EXFOR) in a consistent manner, and also to properly utilise them for comparison with other experimental and evaluated yields.
