Data policy

The WFCAM Science Archive contains data from all pipeline processed WFCAM programmes, both survey (i.e. the UKIDSS) and non-survey (open time PI) programmes. In general, these data have proprietary periods attached to them: UKIDSS data are for use by consortium members and astronomers in ESO member countries for a period of 18 months after observation; data obtained for open time programmes are for use by the PI and named co-Is only for a period of 12 months after observations. Once these proprietary periods have expired, the data become available to all.

If you wish to access proprietary data and are entitled to do so, then you must be registered with an appropriate user community. This enables you to log in to the archive server and gain full access to the proprietary data associated with that community. Click here for further details concerning data access policies for UKIDSS.

Details of proprietary data are always available in the archive, even if the data themselves are protected.

Note that suggested wording for citing WFCAM data in general and UKIDSS data in particular, is given on the publications page.
