How to Acknowledge UKIRT data in your Papers



Depending on when the data were obtained, an acknowledgement as described below should appear in the acknowledgement section of any published paper containing UKIRT data:

"UKIRT is owned by the University of Hawaii (UH) and operated by the UH Institute for Astronomy; operations are enabled through the cooperation of the East Asian Observatory."

If you are using any UKIRT data obtained between November 1, 2014 and May 31, 2017, add the following sentence:

"When (some of) the data reported here were acquired, UKIRT was supported by NASA and operated under an agreement among the University of Hawaii, the University of Arizona, and Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center; operations were enabled through the cooperation of the East Asian Observatory."


If you are using any UKIRT data obtained prior to November 1st, 2014, add the following sentence:

"When (some of) the data reported here were acquired, UKIRT was operated by the Joint Astronomy Centre on behalf of the Science and Technology Facilities Council of the U.K."


In addition, any paper containing data obtained during UKIRT Service observing should mention the Service Programme either in the observations section, the acknowledgements, or both. e.g.,

"Some of the data reported here were obtained as part of the UKIRT Service Programme"


Any paper containing data obtained using IRPOL2 should also include the following (or similar) acknowledgment:

"We thank the Department of Physical Sciences, University of Hertfordshire, for providing IRPOL2 for the UKIRT."
