EXOPUBS: Help

EXOPUBS - EXOSAT Bibliography


Overview

This database table contains information about all EXOSAT publications in refereed journals that make use of EXOSAT data. Each entry is unique for every combination of publication and X-ray source. For example, a paper which discusses five X-ray sources will have generated five distinct entries in the database, each referring to a different X-ray source.

Unlike EXOLOG, the EXOPUBS database also includes entries for serendipitous sources. In addition to standard database parameters such as source name, coordinates, object class, etc., the EXOPUBS includes the full reference (authors, journal, volume, page, year) and title of each publication.

Note the information is not complete after the year 1991.

Class

Targno
