How to cite ivo://org.gavo.dc/arigfh/katkat/q

Reference an Associated Publication

This service has an associated publication. If you use its data, it may be appropriate to reference 1989AGAb....2...33W (ADS BibTeX entry for the publication) either in addition to or instead of the service reference.

Reference the Service

To cite the service as such, we suggest the following BibTeX entry:

@MISC{vo:katkat_web,
  year=2010,
  title={{ARI} Catalog of Catalogs},
  author={Wielen, R.; Erbach, M.; Schwan, H.; Demleitner, M.; et al.},
  url={http://dc.zah.uni-heidelberg.de/arigfh/katkat/q/info},
  howpublished={{VO} resource provided by the {GAVO} Data Center}
}

Perhaps Have a Look at Licenses and such

Some services have additional advice or requests on citing in their copyright information. For this service, that is:

The individual catalogs may have other licensing or copyright schemes, but in general a sound citation practice should be all right -- even more so since most of the individual authors are either dead or retired.
