Acknowledgement for JCMT Papers

The following acknowledgement should appear at some point in any published papers containing data obtained with the JCMT:

 

“The James Clerk Maxwell Telescope is operated by the East Asian Observatory on behalf of The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, the National Astronomical Observatories of China and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Grant No. XDB09000000), with additional funding support from the Science and Technology Facilities Council of the United Kingdom and participating universities in the United Kingdom and Canada.”

 

Authors are also asked to give the identification number(s), i.e. “Program ID”, of the program(s) under which their data were obtained, e.g. M07AU05, M07BC13, M07BN10, or M07AI24. We recommend that this reference to the Program ID be made in the acknowledgement section at the end of the paper or in the Observations section of the paper.

This project ID is included in your data files under the PROJECT FITS header.

Publications involving SCUBA-2 data must reference the papers found at the following link; publications involving HARP data must reference the paper found here.

If appropriate, please also acknowledge the provision of visiting instrument(s).

 

Acknowledging pre-EAO observations

The following acknowledgement should appear at some point in any published papers containing data obtained with the JCMT prior to the handover to EAO on March 1st 2015:

 

The James Clerk Maxwell Telescope has historically been operated by the Joint Astronomy Centre on behalf of the Science and Technology Facilities Council of the United Kingdom, the National Research Council of Canada and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research.

 

Papers containing SCUBA-2 data should include the following sentence in addition:

 

Additional funds for the construction of SCUBA-2 were provided by the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

 

As with EAO-era observations, authors are  asked to give the identification number(s), i.e. “Program ID”, of the program(s) under which their data were obtained, e.g. M07AU05, M07BC13, M07BN10, or M07AI24. We recommend that this reference to the Program ID be made in the acknowledgement section at the end of the paper or in the Observations section of the paper. The project ID is included in your data files under the PROJECT FITS header.

 

Authors must also cite the appropriate instrumentation paper for their observations as they would for current data. Publications involving SCUBA-2 data must reference the papers found at the following link; publications involving HARP data must reference the paper found here.
