Herschel Scientific Publications
Scientific results based on Herschel observations are de facto communicated via publications in the refereed scientific literature. This webpage provides a listing of published refereed Herschel papers, the applicable rules and guidelines for publishing can be found elsewhere.
Herschel Refereed Publications Library
The list of publications provided here is generated by using the ADS Astronomy and Astrophysics searches followed by manual inspections of the "hits" using the criteria listed below. It is updated typically twice a month and maintained by the Herschel Project Scientist, to whom feedback can be provided. In particular, please report papers that are missing in the list, should you come across any.
The list itself is provided in two complementary ways, in the standard ADS "short list format" (you can use ADS to generate other formats) and through a web interface that provides additional functionality in terms of searching and sorting. (The ADS listing is the "master", the web interface database is regenerated daily based on the ADS listing.)
What papers are listed?
The current criteria that a paper should fulfil to make it eligible for listing are described here. They are unchanged since the list was established, but can be updated. (Ultimately this possibly could lead to the provision of multiple listings.)
The criteria used for being included in the listing (or not) currently in use are:
The first papers fulfilling these criteria and thus the 'oldest' listed are the papers published in the Herschel special feature in A&A volume 518. This volume contains 152 papers, most (but not all) of them based on PACS and SPIRE science demonstration phase (SDP) observations. Due to the HIFI anomaly it was unavailable for an extended period and the HIFI SDP observations were carried out later. A second special feature with an additional 50 papers based on HIFI data was published in A&A volume 521. All 202 special feature papers are freely available and can be accessed via the two special features pages linked through the images below.
