INTEGRAL is performing public Target-of-Opportunity observations of the black-hole binary X-ray transient MAXI J1820+070 (ATel #11399). So far, data have been collected in the period 16-27 March 2018 (see ATels #11478, #11488). INTEGRAL will continue to publicly monitor the source until further notice, interspersed with other observations.

As a service to the community, especially meant to help multi-wavelength data comparisons, the INTEGRAL Project is providing ready-to-use scientific data products of all publicly available observations of the source via the INTEGRAL Science Data Centre (University of Geneva, Switzerland). This will be in the form of light curves in 1 energy band for JEM-X1 (3-25 keV) and 2 energy bands for IBIS/ISGRI (25-60 and 60-200 keV). All relevant information and data files can be retrieved from the repository linked at the bottom of this Telegram. We caution that these data products are based on preliminary (near-real time) data and analysis; they will be updated whenever appropriate.

We kindly ask anyone making use of these INTEGRAL data products to cite this Telegram.

We thank the INTEGRAL Science and Mission Operations Centres for their effort in making these observations possible.
