EXOPUBS - EXOSAT Bibliography
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.
The 'name' parameter gives the target designation. This name usually
corresponds to the target name as specified by the original observer. If a
source has been observed by different observers, it may be entered under two
or more names. It is recommended that any search by 'name' always should be
followed by a search on position.
