This page allows PPTA team members to read and sign up to papers in preparation, as well as check on the status of submitted papers. Papers are attached below. Paper authorship is decided as follows:

1. The first author creates a list of authors that have provided significant input into the paper. These lead authors are listed in order according to a consensus amongst them on how much input they have provided to the paper.

2. All PPTA group 1 team members are eligible for inclusion on the PPTA papers and can sign up following the instructions below.

3. All PPTA group 2 team members are welcome to request authorship. However, please ensure that you have made a significant contribution, for example, helped with the observing and/or given theoretical/interpretative input. All co-authors should have read the paper and given comments to the first author. For instance, if you have only just joined the project please consider carefully whether you should sign up to a paper or not. Authors will be added in alphabetical order after the lead authors.

Instructions for signing up for a paper

  • The first author will send an email to the PPTA email distribution list when s/he is ready for the paper to be viewed.
  • Read the paper that will be attached below on this website and send any comments that you have to (at least) the lead authors.
  • Decide whether you should be 1) a co-author, 2) acknowledged in the paper, or 3) not included on the paper. Edit this wiki (by clicking on the Edit tab on the top-right of this page) and add your name in the relevant section.

Requirements on papers and submission

  • CSIRO members: we have been requested to submit to MNRAS instead of ApJ where possible (to save on page charges). If you require a contribution for a CSIRO member for an ApJ paper then please let us know in plenty of time
