  • GAMA

    If you are using GAMA DR2 data in a publication then please cite the DR2 paper (Liske et al. 2015) and acknowledge GAMA using the following text :
    GAMA is a joint European-Australasian project based around a spectroscopic campaign using the Anglo-Australian Telescope. The GAMA input catalogue is based on data taken from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey. Complementary imaging of the GAMA regions is being obtained by a number of independent survey programmes including GALEX MIS, VST KiDS, VISTA VIKING, WISE, Herschel-ATLAS, GMRT and ASKAP providing UV to radio coverage. GAMA is funded by the STFC (UK), the ARC (Australia), the AAO, and the participating institutions. The GAMA website is

  • 6dF

    Any use of these data should explicitly state that they come from the Final Release of 6dFGS and cite both the 6dGS DR3 paper (Jones et al 2009) as well as the original 6dFGS survey paper (Jones et al 2004, MNRAS 355, 747).
    The 2004 paper remains the most comprehensive description of the survey but the 2009 paper details many important subsequent developments and changes.
