13 September 2012 Observatory bibliographies: current practices
Author Affiliations +
Astronomical facilities, both large and small, space- and ground-based, independently create and maintain publication databases that can be used to characterize the scientific productivity and impact of these facilities. This paper will present the results of a new survey that reveals how individual observatories manage bibliographies as well as their motivations behind them. We will examine such factors as: criteria for paper inclusion, metadata collected, staff involved, inter-operability, and other aspects particular to bibliographies. Finally, we learn how these data are analyzed by these facilities. In sum, the survey results characterize methods and motivations currently at work in astronomical facilities.
