Acknowledgments for RadioAstron publications


RadioAstron acknowledgements which should be added to every scientific publication including conference proceedings which use data from the RadioAstron project:

The RadioAstron project is led by the Astro Space Center of the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Lavochkin Scientific and Production Association under a contract with the State Space Corporation ROSCOSMOS, in collaboration with partner organizations in Russia and other countries.


Текст благодарности для включения в каждую научную публикацию, включая труды конференций, если публикация использует данные проекта РадиоАстрон:

Проект РадиоАстрон осуществляется Астрокосмическим центром Физического института им. П.Н. Лебедева Российской Академии наук и Научно-производственным объединением им. С.А. Лавочкина по контракту с Госкорпорацией "РОСКОСМОС" совместно с многими научно-техническими организациями в России и других странах.

Please also do not forget to include acknowledgement for other facilities which were used in your research. The specific form of acknowledgement needed for the participating facilities can be found on individual GRT/network web sites. Below we provide you with some (not complete) list of those facilities and acknowledgement sentences.

Russian "Kvazar-KVO" VLBI stations / network
Partly based on observations performed with radio telescopes of IAA RAS (Federal State Budget Scientific Organization Institue of Applied Astronomy of Russian Academy of Sciences).

Представленные результаты частично основаны на наблюдениях, выполненных на радиотелескопах ИПА РАН (Федеральное государственное бюджетное учреждение науки Институт Прикладной Астрономии Российской Академии наук).

Partly based on the Evpatoria RT-70 radio telescope (Ukraine) observations carried out by the Institute of Radio Astronomy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine under a contract with the State Space Agency of Ukraine and by the National Space Facilities Control and Test Center with technical support by Astro Space Center of Lebedev Physical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences.
Представленные исследования частично основаны на результатах наблюдений радиотелескопа РТ-70 Евпатория (Украина), проведенных Радиоастрономическим институтом Национальной Академии наук Украины по контракту с Государственным космическим агентством Украины и Национальным центром управления и испытаний космических средств при технической поддержке Астрокосмического центра Физического института им. П.Н.Лебедева РАН.

Partly based on observations with the 100-m telescope of the MPIfR (Max-Planck-Institute for Radio Astronomy) at Effelsberg.

The European VLBI Network is a joint facility of independent European, African, Asian, and North American radio astronomy institutes.
Scientific results from data presented in this publication are derived from the following EVN project code(s):

In case of global VLBI proposals, please, acknowledge both, the EVN and the NRAO.

Italian GRTs
Partly based on observations with the Medicina (Noto) telescope operated by INAF - Istituto di Radioastronomia.

Partly based on observations with the DSS-63 antenna at the Madrid Deep Space Communication Complex, under the Host Country Radio Astronomy program.

NRAO facilities
The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.

The Long Baseline Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.

The Green Bank Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.

The Arecibo Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by the University of Central Florida and in alliance with Universidad Ana G. Mendez, and Yang Enterprises, Inc.

ATNF facilities
The Australia Telescope Compact Array (Parkes radio telescope / Mopra radio telescope / Long Baseline Array) is part of the Australia Telescope National Facility which is funded by the Australian Government for operation as a National Facility managed by CSIRO.

Torun Centre for Astronomy
This work is based in part on observations carried out using the 32-meter radio telescope operated by Torun Centre for Astronomy of Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun (Poland) and supported by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education SpUB grant.

For publications including RadioAstron results from the AO2 period, the following text should be included in acknowledgements:

"Results of optical positioning measurements of the Spektr-R spacecraft by the global MASTER Robotic Net (Lipunov et al. 2010), ISON collaboration, and Kourovka observatory were used for spacecraft orbit determination in addition to mission facilities."

Для публикаций, включающих результаты миссии РадиоАстрон периода AO2, следующий текст необходимо добавить в список благодарностей:

"Результаты оптических позиционных измерений космического аппарата Спектр-Р глобальной сетью телескопов МАСТЕР (Lipunov et al. 2010), коллаборацией ISON и Коуровской обсерваторией использовались для высокоточного восстановления орбиты аппарата в дополнение к стандартным средствам миссии."

We also encourage authors to acknowledge usage of a correlator:

for the ASC correlator, use the reference Kardashev et al., 2013, ARep, 57, 153;
for the DiFX, use the (general) reference Deller et al., 2011, PASP, 123, 275, and (RadioAstron specific) preprint arXiv:1502.06894.

Bonn correlator
This research is based on observations correlated at the Bonn Correlator, jointly operated by the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR), and the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG).
