Acknowledgment in papers

Any paper using DECam data should use the appropriate acknowledgement(s)  found at

Scroll down until you find Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO).    There you will find text, PDF and LaTeX versions of the acknowledgement needed if you are using DECam data resulting from NOAO-granted community time.   

If you are  using Dark Energy Survey (DES) public archive data then you should use an acknowledgement with a different leading sentence.  You can find this by scrolling down further to NOAO Science Archive (NSA), or use the direct link

Please check whether further acknowledgement text is appropriate, and if you are writing for an AAS journal be sure to include the keywords CTIO:Blanco (DECam).
