How to Acknowledge NOAO in Publications


Acknowledgment of NOAO in Publications: Observers using NOAO facilities and observers using NOAO-granted community-access time at non-NOAO facilities are expected to produce publications describing their research activity at these facilities. This webpage lists appropriate acknowledgements for specific telescopes, surveys, and the Science Data Archive at NOAO.

Please note that we use the NOAO Prop. ID for an observing run to track and document publications using our data and data products. Please include this number in the acknowledgments section of your publication.

Publications Lists: The National Optical Astronomy Observatory Publications Lists include refereed publications using data from NOAO telescopes and from NOAO-granted community-access time on non-NOAO telescopes. It includes referred and non-refereed publications for NOAO scientific staff.

Media Contacts: Please notify the NOAO Office of Education & Public Outreach if your scientific results or supporting imagery have the potential to be interesting to the news media. Our staff can help you prepare a press release package or work with your news office to do the same.

Notification: Please notify the NOAO Librarian of any publication based on NOAO archival research, use of NOAO telescopes, and/or use of NOAO-granted community-access time on non-NOAO telescopes.

Questions: If you have any questions, please contact noao-publications@noao.edu
