Use the appropriate acknowledgments for NOIRLab and its programs, services, etc.

1. Papers Based on Data From the Gemini Telescopes

Please notify the Gemini Librarian at the Gemini Observatory at NOIRLab: library@gemini.edu

1.1. The General Acknowledgement

Papers containing data from the Gemini Observatory, a program of NOIRLab (e.g. an ApJ paper), should include the following general acknowledgment as a footnote on the first page or in the last section before the references:

Based on observations obtained at the international Gemini Observatory, a program of NOIRLab [include additional acknowledgement here, see section below], which is managed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation on behalf of the Gemini Observatory partnership: the National Science Foundation (United States), National Research Council (Canada), Agencia Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo(Chile), Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación (Argentina), Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações (Brazil), and Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (Republic of Korea).

If appropriate, please also acknowledge the provision of visiting instrument(s) as described in the relevant "documents" web pages for that instrument.


Authors are also asked to give the identification number ("Program ID") of the program(s) under which their data were obtained. 
Example: GN-2004A-Q-10, or GS-2003B-C-1, or GN-2002B-SV-78, or GS-2005A-DD-96. 
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 “documents” sections also list reference(s) that should be cited to describe the facility and visiting instruments.

2. Papers Based on Data from Gemini-Subaru Exchange Time

2.1. For Observations from Subaru

Based [in part] on data collected at the Subaru Telescope, via the time exchange program between Subaru and the international Gemini Observatory, a program of NOIRLab. The Subaru Telescope is operated by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.

2.2. For Observations from Gemini

Based [in part] on data obtained at the international Gemini Observatory, a program of NOIRLab, via the time exchange program between Gemini and the Subaru Telescope [include additional acknowledgement here, see above]. The international Gemini Observatory at NOIRLab is managed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation on behalf of the Gemini partnership: the National Science Foundation (United States), the National Research Council (Canada), Agencia Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo (Chile), Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación (Argentina), Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações (Brazil), and Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (Republic of Korea).


3. Papers about Gemini

Papers published about Gemini (for example, SPIE papers on an instrument) should have the following acknowledgement as a footnote on the first page or in the last section before the references:

4. Papers Authored or Co-Authored by Gemini Staff

4.1. Papers by Gemini Staff not using Gemini data

Papers authored or co-authored by Gemini staff not using Gemini data should acknowledge funding from the agencies by using the following statement in the acknowledgement section at the end of their paper:

Supported by the international Gemini Observatory, a program of NOIRLab, which is managed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation, on behalf of the Gemini partnership of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, the Republic of Korea, and the United States of America.

Please note that, regardless of placement in the author list (as in, first to last author), this credit line must be included.

4.2. Papers by Gemini Staff using Gemini Data

For papers by Gemini staff using Gemini data,  use the general acknowledgment listed above.


5. Papers Based on Data from One of the Following Visiting Instruments

5.1 GRACES

Based on observations obtained with ESPaDOnS, located at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT). CFHT is operated by the National Research Council of Canada, the Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique of France, and the University of Hawai’i. ESPaDOnS is a collaborative project funded by France (CNRS, MENESR, OMP, LATT), Canada (NSERC), CFHT and ESA. ESPaDOnS was remotely controlled from the international Gemini Observatory, a program of NOIRLab, which is managed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation on behalf of the Gemini partnership: the National Science Foundation (United States), the National Research Council (Canada), Agencia Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo (Chile), Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación (Argentina), Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações (Brazil), and Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (Republic of Korea).

5.2 `Alopeke and/or Zorro

(Some of the) Observations in the paper made use of the High-Resolution Imaging instrument(s) ‘Alopeke (and/or Zorro). ‘Alopeke (and/or Zorro) was funded by the NASA Exoplanet Exploration Program and built at the NASA Ames Research Center by Steve B. Howell, Nic Scott, Elliott P. Horch, and Emmett Quigley. ‘Alopeke (and/or Zorro) was mounted on the Gemini North (and/or South) telescope of the international Gemini Observatory, a program of NOIRLab, which is managed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation. on behalf of the Gemini partnership: the National Science Foundation (United States), National Research Council (Canada), Agencia Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo (Chile), Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación (Argentina), Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações (Brazil), and Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (Republic of Korea).
