|Call for Proposals and HST Primer|
It is expected that the results of HST observations and Archival Research will be published in the scientific literature. All refereed publications based on HST data must carry the following footnote (with the first phrase in brackets included in the case of Archival Research):“Based on observations made with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, obtained [from the Data Archive] at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., under NASA contract NAS 5-26555. These observations are associated with program # ____.”If the research was supported by a grant from STScI, the publication should also carry the following acknowledgment at the end of the text:“Support for program #____ was provided by NASA through a grant from the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., under NASA contract NAS 5-26555.”Because of the importance of maintaining the accuracy and completeness of the HST bibliography, a link to an electronic version of each preprint of publications based on HST research should be sent via email to the following addresses:
• This requirement includes both refereed and non-refereed publications, but not abstracts or poster papers. As soon as links are received, they are entered into the publicly available HST bibliography.
