Instruction for Hinode data users

Let us stress that the entire Hinode operation relies on public funding, and it is extremely important for us to produce outputs that are visible and accountable, in continuing the current stable and fruitful operation which we hope the scientific community enjoys. As an attempt to ensure this, we would like to present two sets of rules/guidelines.

The first set concerns what you do when you write papers using Hinode data. Please consider this set as rigid rules that you are expected to follow, although there is no way of enforcing them. They are:

1. Acknowledgements

When you write a paper, please inculde the standard acknowledgment sentences to Hinode, which are found here.

2. Instrumentation papers

Please also refer to the relevant instrumentation papers listed here.

3. Entry to PhD/Master thesis list
  • Tell relevant instrument PI(s) what you are working on.

This is partly to our benefit, particularly in protecting exsiting and potential Ph.D. thesis projects. Also, if your project coincides with one that core team members are working on, that can lead to a fruitful collaboration. This will also work as a way for you to gain better insights into Hinode data.

Acknowledgement to Hinode

When you publish your work on Hinode data, we would like to ask you to acknowledge the Hinode mission as follows.

Hinode is a Japanese mission developed and launched by ISAS/JAXA, with NAOJ as domestic partner and NASA and STFC (UK) as international partners. It is operated by these agencies in co-operation with ESA and NSC (Norway).

We would be grateful if you could place more detailed acknowledgement.

Hinode is a Japanese mission developed and launched by ISAS/JAXA, collaborating with NAOJ as a domestic partner, NASA and STFC (UK) as international partners. Scientific operation of the Hinode mission is conducted by the Hinode science team organized at ISAS/JAXA. This team mainly consists of scientists from institutes in the partner countries. Support for the post-launch operation is provided by JAXA and NAOJ(Japan), STFC (U.K.), NASA, ESA, and NSC (Norway).
