This chapter begins by covering: kinematics for fixed target and HERA collider experiments; essential features of DIS experiments and detectors; and how DIS events are selected and the raw data corrected to give cross-sections. It then summarizes nucleon structure function data from the classic DIS experiments, including some early HERA data. The next topics covered are measurement of the longitudinal structure function and the contribution of heavy flavours (particularly charm) to the proton structure function. The chapter ends with a brief account of structure function data — viewed as virtual-photon proton cross-sections — in the ‘transition region’ between photoproduction and deep inelastic scattering.

Keywords:   kinematics, fixed target, HERA collider experiments, DIS Experiments, detectors, structure function data, longitudinal structure function, heavy flavours, transition region
