Acknowledgements to HerMES and HeDaM

All paper using Herschel data downloaded from HeDaM should include the following acknowledgements:

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

The HerMES 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 the appropriate papers among: Oliver et al. (2012) for a description of the observations; Smith et al. (2012), Roseboom et al. (2010) and Wang et al. (2014) for the catalogues; Levenson et al. (2010) and Viero et al. (2013) for the image maps.

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

Standard references to Herschel and its instruments

All Herschel publications are requested to quote the OBSIDs of the Herschel observations used.

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.
