Small (Section 3.2.1
), Medium (Section 3.2.2
), Large (Section 3.2.3
) and Treasury (Section 3.2.6
) GO Proposals can be identified as supporting the JWST Initiative. SNAP, Archival and Theory proposals do not qualify for this initiative.
Proposers should use the Special Requirements section to describe the connection with specific JWST observations. If the Hubble observations are critical to the success of the future JWST program, the science goals of the full program should be described in the Scientific Justification, including an explanation as to why Hubble observations are deemed essential to achieve those goals
. The panels and the TAC will consider the connection between the proposed Hubble and JWST observations as part of the review process. The proposal will be assessed based on the science expectations for the full program
, including both the HST and JWST observations. Following the recommendations of the Space Telescope Users Committee, JWST Preparatory proposal data will, by default, not have a proprietary period (a default of zero months). A proprietary period may be requested, which will be additionally reviewed by the TAC.
