Search form

To aid organizations in obtaining information on the effectiveness of their telescopes, the AAS has created a vocabulary of facility keywords for telescope facilities for use in journal articles. The use of a common set of facility keywords across astronomical publications will make searches for telescopes significantly easier and more accurate. In addition, the facility keywords will be useful for linking papers that use the same telescopes together within the framework of the National Virtual Observatory.

Most facility keywords are just the facility’s common name or acronym but some are a combination of the telescope’s physical location and name or acronym. Authors may include additional text in parentheses after the facility keyword to cite facility instruments or telescope configurations. For example, the Wide Field Planetary Camera II on HST would be designated as HST (WFPC2). Anyone may propose new facility keywords for facilities not currently found on the list. Contact the AAS journals’ staff scientist, Dr. Greg Schwarz (gschwarz"at"aas.org), with the proposed facility keyword.

Use the facility keyword table to look up facility keywords for inclusion in your paper. Use the Sort button at the top of each column to sort by Name, Wavelength, Location or by Solar Facility.

When preparing a LaTeX manuscript for submission, tag facility keywords with the AASTeX “\facility” macro and place them in a new paragraph following the acknowledgments. Include the word “Facility” or “Facilities” in italics at the beginning of the list. Separate multiple facility keywords with commas.
