Acknowledging or Citing Astropy

In Publications

If you use Astropy for work/research presented in a publication (whether directly, or as a dependency to another package), we ask that you cite the Astropy Paper (ADS - BibTeX). We provide the following as a standard acknowledgment you can use if there is not a specific place to cite the paper:

This research made use of Astropy, a community-developed core Python package for Astronomy (Astropy Collaboration, 2013).

If you wish, you can also include a link to (if the journal allows this) in addition to the above text.
