How to cite SkyMapper data

Full details of the DR1 data, processing, and early analysis are presented in Wolf et al., 2018, PASA 35, 10 (arXiv:1801.07834)
We ask authors also cite the DOI for the DR1 release: 10.4225/41/593620ad5b574

Details of the DR2 data, processing, and early analysis are presented in Onken et al., 2019, PASA 36, 33
We ask authors also cite the DOI for the DR2 release:
10.25914/5ce60d31ce759

For the Early Data Release, please cite it just via its DOI: 10.4225/41/572FF2C5EBD30

When using SkyMapper data, please cite the relevant data release paper and add an acknowledgment depending on the data source being used:

Use of data from Southern Sky Survey data releases

Authors are required to include the following acknowledgement paragraph in the paper:

"The national facility capability for SkyMapper has been funded through ARC LIEF grant LE130100104 from the Australian Research Council, awarded to the University of Sydney, the Australian National University, Swinburne University of Technology, the University of Queensland, the University of Western Australia, the University of Melbourne, Curtin University of Technology, Monash University and the Australian Astronomical Observatory. SkyMapper is owned and operated by The Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. The survey data were processed and provided by the SkyMapper Team at ANU. The SkyMapper node of the All-Sky Virtual Observatory (ASVO) is hosted at the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI). Development and support the SkyMapper node of the ASVO has been funded in part by Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) and the Australian Government through the Commonwealth's Education Investment Fund (EIF) and National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), particularly the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) and the Australian National Data Service Projects (ANDS)."

If help is provided in obtaining specific data, database assistance, data characterisation, additional calibration assistance, etc., then the assisting members of the SkyMapper Team should be included as co-authors.
