Description

The reduced cross sections for ep deep inelastic scattering have been measured with the ZEUS and H1 detectors at HERA at three different centre-of-mass energies, 318, 251 and 225 GeV. From the cross sections, measured double differentially in Bjorken x and the virtuality, Q2, the proton structure functions F_L and F_2 have been extracted in a wide kinematic region. The measurements are compared with NLO QCD predictions.
