# How to Cite SDSS

If you have used public SDSS data in your paper, please cite the following papers describing the instruments, survey, and data analysis as appropriate. Links open in new windows.

For your convenience we provide them in bibitem and bibtex formats ready for your LaTeX paper.

Please cite the relevant survey description(s):

the Sloan Foundation 2.5-meter Telescope description:

the relevant Data Release Paper:

and the relevant instrumentation paper(s):

In addition, the appropriate SDSS acknowledgment(s) for the survey and data releases that were used should be included in the Acknowledgments section:

For reference, a more extensive list of technical SDSS papers that it may be appropriate to cite is available at the Technical Publications page . In particular, this list includes papers that describe the target selection algorithms for the different SDSS spectroscopic surveys and the methods that have been used to extract physical quantities such as classifications, photometry, astronometry, redshifts, and stellar parameters from the survey data.
