Authorship recommendations:

There is no obligation to include CHARA staff in the author list.  However, if a CHARA staff member contributed in some particular way in planning, obtaining or analyzing the observations or preparing the manuscript, then we recommend that that person be recognized in the authorship list. Initial publications about new instrumentation should include the CHARA staff at Mount Wilson who helped with implementation.


Communication of results:

Please send copies of each of your published papers to Douglas Gies and Gail Schaefer (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) , so that we can keep our publication list up to date (and enjoy reading about your results).


AAS Journals Facility Tracking:

The Astrophysical Journal, The Astrophysical Journal Supplement, and Astronomical Journal allow you to tag the CHARA Array with the following keyword in the \facility{} or \facilities{} field:
