Use of the data in publications is encouraged, but subject to the following conditions:

  • The observers concerned should be contacted to confirm the particular acquisition and data reduction procedures used.
  • The campaign PI should be contacted to determine if the planned analysis could be a collaborative effort or an additional analysis.
  • Observers contributing data or whose data are useful to the findings of the paper should be invited to be co-authors.
  • The following acknowledgement should be included in all publications: This publication is based (in part) on spectroscopic data obtained through the collaborative Southern Astro Spectroscopy Email Ring (SASER) group.
