General acknowledgements

Every paper using Herchel Reference Survey data downloaded from these pages should, please, include the following acknowledgements:

This research has made use of data from HRS project. HRS is a Herschel Key Programme utilising Guaranteed Time from the SPIRE instrument team, ESAC scientists and a mission scientist.

The HRS data was accessed through the Herschel Database in Marseille (HeDaM - operated by CeSAM and hosted by the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille.

and refer to Boselli et al. 2010, PASP, 122, 261

Also, a link to HeDaM ( in a footnote would be very appreciated.

Specific acknowledgements

Depending on the data you are using in your work, please refer to the corresponding publication:

  • People using the MIPS data should refer to Bendo et al. (2012).
  • People using the SPIRE photometry data should refer to Ciesla et al. (2012).
  • People using the GALEX data should refer to Cortese et al. (2012).
  • People using the integrated spectroscopy should refer to Boselli et at. (2013).

Standard references to Herschel and its instruments

In all papers using Herschel data, a compulsory footnote on the first page should be included. The footnote is:

Herschel is an ESA space observatory with science instruments provided by European-led Principal Investigator consortia and with important participation from NASA.

Reference to Herschel and its instruments should be made using the following standard references as appropriate. By means of an example:

In the present paper we will be discussing observations performed with the ESA Herschel Space Observatory (Pilbratt et al. 2010), in particular employing Herschel's large telescope and powerful science payload to do photometry using the PACS (Poglitsch et al. 2010) and SPIRE (Griffin et al. 2010) instruments, and very high resolution spectroscopy with the HIFI (de Graauw et al. 2010) instrument.
